ABSTRACT

This thesis aims to provide a normative consideration of the peace movement around the Futenma base and determine the roles, limitations and possibilities of the peace movement focused on the right to live in peace. It provides a diachronic overview of the political background of the Futenma base transfer, examines the movement against the Henoco base construction to date, and investigates the right to live in peace, created and spread as a basic value and norm against base construction, from a normative perspective. It shows that the right to live in peace as a constitutive norm has played a key role in forming the identity of Okinawa people and in developing discussions on the anti-base movement. On the other hand, the roles of the right to live in peace as a regulative norm are limited because the Okinawa base problem is addressed on the basis of the diplomatic politics of the America-Japan axis. However, the anti-base movement based on the right to live in peace is being driven by international solidarity movement and will thus gain momentum. In addition, with Okinawa local politics entering a new phase with the new governor, the political pressures from America and Japan and the expansion of discussions on peace as a human right will make political changes possible.
