ABSTRACT

This study was conducted by the Japanese Diet to discuss the territorial issue and to study policies of each political party. In particular, the purpose of this research is to analyze the awareness and policies of each party on the Dokdo. In particular, the purpose of this research is to analyze the awareness and policies of each party on the dot problem. It analyzes how the approach to the territorial issue has changed with the changes in government since 1993. As an analysis method, the Standing Committee of the Diet analyzes the contents of the medium-speed recording and the manifestations presented by each party at the time of the election. In the House of Representatives of Japan, until 1990‘s, the Dokdo issue was thoroughly discussed in the Economic and Industrial Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee. In the 2000’s, the Dokdo issue was discussed at the plenary session and the Budget and Accounts Committee. However, after 2010‘s the Dokdo issue was discussed in the Cabinet Committee of the House of Representatives and the House of Councilors. The change of the committee that handles the territorial issue in the Diet is a change along with the reorganization of the Japanese government organization. When I looked at the policies of each Japanese political party toward the Dokdo issue, it was confirmed that each party was discriminatory. In particular, the policies of the Democratic Party of Japan are also discriminatoryin discussions in the Diet. In the case of the Communist Party, in connection with the Dokdo issue, the Japanese government’s position is correct, but they have consistently maintained that the position of South Korea at the time must be taken into consideration. I think the discrimination and commonality of Japanese political parties toward the territorial issue is a strategic point when Korea considers the territorial issue.
