Globalization and Education in Japan

by Kentaro Ohkura & Masako Shibata - 2009

In this chapter, the authors contend that globalization in Japan is the gradual process in which Japan’s positioning of self within international relations, which had formerly been dominated by the West, has changed. Accordingly, Japan’s relationships with the West and the rest of the world, for example, Asia, have also been reviewed and modified. The argument is developed in the context in which Japan sees itself through its image of the international community. The so-called Westernization theme of Japan, and probably of other “catch-up” countries, is not as linear as before, and does seem to be more complex in this age of globalization. The dominance of the West in education and other fields has steadily been multi-polarized, and its decline has raised competition among countries around the world.
