China, Japan, and the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands

Raum JAP 1, Japanologie, Hof 2, Eingang 2.4 am Campus der Universität Wien
Spitalgasse 2, 1090 Wien


This lecture looks at the evolution of the “Senkaku/Diaoyu problem” in the frame of Japan-China and US-Japan relations, considering the conflicting readings of the historical record, the relevant principles of international law, academic, media and civic constructions of the dispute, the US stake, the Okinawan stake, and the various formula that have been proposed to resolve it.

Gavan McCormack is emeritus professor in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, Australian National University.
