Japan-Africa Relations seeks to study the complex nature of the dynamics of power relations between Japan and Africa since the Bandung Conference in 1955, with an emphasis on the period starting from the 1970s up to the present. The author examines specificities of the claims of the Japanese State in pursuing these relations and those of the African states’ demands as reflected in the African conditions. The focus on Japanese economic assistance includes: technical assistance, grants, and loans. Additionally, the book seeks to identify and examine the dominant observable trends of these relations within the world system with comparative illustrations and to analyze the policy implications of these trends in both in Japan and Africa in relationship to the issue of the search for new paradigms for social progress and democracy in Africa and new power location in Japan.
