Education for International Understanding in Japan: Japanese Self-Identification and the Discourse of Internationalization after the Second World War
Intercultural Education, v15 n2 p209-219 2004
The principal focus of this study is to shed light on how the notion of education for international understanding has developed in Japan, particularly in relation to outside views of Japan in the discourse pertaining to the internationalization of Japan. This examination also needs to trace how "nihonjinron" (discussion of the nature of Japanese culture and society and Japanese national character by both Japanese and foreign academics, journalists, economists and others) has changed. This study lastly devotes some space to examining the educational reforms in this field which are currently taking place.
