Abstract

Since the conclusion of World War II, and Japan’s subsequent surrender to allied forces, Russia and Japan have had a tepid relationship, exacerbated by the fact that a formal peace treaty was never signed between them. Some animosity has spilled over into a long-held dispute over lands that Japan calls the “Northern Territories”. There are rays of hope for relieving the tensions in the form of economic cooperation and a shared wariness of the growing Chinese presence as an economic and military powerhouse, among other factors. This paper will address the question: How can Russia and Japan resolve the dispute over these Northern Territories in a peaceful way that is beneficial for all involved?
