O Japão no Conselho de Segurança nas Nações Unidas

  • Débora Simões (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Japan, a world economic power, has been, for the last decades, one of the top contributors for the United Nations. However, its attempts to win a permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council, the executive power of the organization, have been frustrated. This dissertation analyses how the shift in Japanese foreign policy after the cold war period was translated to the United Nations Security Council. The goal of this dissertation, with an important theoretical chapter, is to study the actions of Japan in the United Nations Security Council as a non-permanent member and see if its actions are coherent with Japan’s official foreign policy principles and try to understand if the behavior of Japan in this organization can be explained by the Theory of International Relations.
