Vol.33-3(December.2018)"Japan's Foreign Policy on Postwar Issues Relating to South Korea"
Abstract: This study investigates the causes of Japan's failure to reconcile the matter of South Korean “comfort women” from World War II. It draws on reconciliation theory to determine the cause of failure by Japan. After a review of the literature on this issue with an emphasis on its history, the effect of Japan's problem‐solving attempts, and the backlash after the 2015 “comfort women” agreement, we call attention to Japan's weak civil society and its distortion of history in textbooks as internal causes of this failure. Moreover, we highlight the US–ROK–Japan trilateral security cooperation as an external cause of the deterioration of the reconciliation attempts. We conclude by noting that internal and external factors have made it more difficult for Japan to reconcile the matter of South Korean “comfort women.”
