Conference Delegates at Clare College, Cambridge

Dates: 20-23 September 2014

This international conference aims to understand how political rule and legal authority were redrafted in postwar Japan and East Asia. The research presentations will shed light on a variety of historical transformations that occurred immediately after the surrender of Japan. These political, social, economic, legal, and military shifts continue to have deep resonance in the contemporary world and demonstrate new steps toward understanding how the dissolution of the Japanese empire both influenced and impeded post-WWII relations in the region.
