Specific Research 【 display / non-display

  • Neutrality in World Politics

    2020   Heinz Gärtner, Herbert Reginbogin

     View Summary

    This research project investigates modern forms of neutralism in the Post-Cold War era. The project documents new developments in neutrality studies as, for instance, the neutralist tendencies in the foreign policies of Serbia, Belarus, Turkmenistan, and Mongolia. It also investigates the diplomatic space for neutral states in international institutions. The project is an outcome of a conference organized by me and collaborators in Austria in February 2020. The venue “Friends with Enemies: Neutrality and Nonalignment Then and Now." (Vienna, March 1‒3 2020) was successful in bringing together neutrality researchers from around the world. This fiscal year, the project further developed into a book project in which ten authors will contribute chapters to the analysis of modern neutralist tendencies around the globe. The project thereby offers new perspectives on the study of neutral countries. The resulting book will be published in late 2021 or early 2022.

  • Swedish-Japanese Relations during the Second World War

    2020   Ingemar Ottosson

     View Summary

    In this project, Ingemar Ottosson, of Lund University, and I collaborated on researching and writing a manuscript about the bilateral relationship of Sweden and Japan during Japan’s fifteen years of warfare, from 1931–1945. Since Sweden remained neutral during the entire time of Japan’s conflicts in China, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific, Stockholm could play an interesting role in the international relations of Asia, even during the height of the war. The research concludes that Swedish interests toward Japan and Asia in general were strong and old enough to survive the belligerency of WWII, and that also Japan gained advantages from its relationship with Sweden. At the same time, the USA and other belligerents, too used the Swedish connection to further their interests toward the Japanese Empire, even when war had already broken out. The resulting book will be published in 2021, by Routledge.

  • Neutral Actors in Historical and Contemporary Security Systems

    2019   Yoko Iwama, Ingemar Ottosson, Herbert R. Reginbogin

     View Summary

    The Tokutei Kadai grant helped me to finish my most recent (edited) book publication on “Permanent Neutrality: A Model for Peace, Security, and Justice”. I was able to cover proof-reading and indexing from the fund. Also, the grant supported an international conference I organized in December (14-15) at the National Graduate Institute for Public Policy: “The Neutrals and the Bomb—Neutral and Nonaligned States and Nonproliferation”. The conference was a great success and helped tremendously with the understanding of neutral actors during and after the creation of the Nonproliferation Regime. It spurred international cooperation and will serve as the backbone of future research in this area.  Lastly, the grant also helped to do fieldwork in Swiss archives, where I searched for connections between Switzerland and Sweden during the Second World War on their neutral collaboration regarding the war situation in Japan.
