The chief contribution of the Constructivist approach lies in its rebuttal of Realist conflict and/ or Liberal co-operation as unquestioned givens. Rather, the structure of international politics is what the constituent parts (more often than not, states) decide to make it. Constructivism regards human nature as neither naturally prone to conflict nor inclined towards co-operation a priori, rather it depends on the socially constructed identities and interests of the actors involved. As Weber states, ‘what states do depends upon what their identities and interests are, and identities and interests change’ (Weber 2001: 60); and, as Berger (2000) suggests: it is incumbent upon the analyst of interstate relations working in the Constructivist paradigm to investigate how the actors in the international system conceive of their interests and their environment, how these conceptions than IR theory and Japan 19 [sic] translate into concrete defence and foreign policy choices, and how their actions interact to shape actual foreign policy outcomes.

This traditional model of Japan’s foreign policy-making has been challenged but still remains, as Fukui has stated, ‘the single most popular and influential model of policy-making in contemporary Japan’ (Fukui, H. 1977a: 22). However, reality is more complicated once emphasis is placed on other state and non-state actors, and the conception of the bureaucracy as a united monolithic structure, which guides Japanese public policy without disagreement, is challenged.

Katzenstein 1993: 266) Especially when the Cold War structure of bipolarity has collapsed, it is necessary to look to new areas for original viewpoints, one of which is the study of norms, regarding them not as given, but as affected by historical change and informing the decisions of policy-making agents. Anti-militarism One of the most influential domestically embedded norms influencing Japan’s foreign, security and defence policies throughout the postwar period is antimilitarism. It demonstrates a high degree of specificity, durability and concordance.
