The Effect of Diplomacy on the Emergence of Food Security: Focusing on the diplomatic activities of Emperor Showa during the food crisis immediately after the World War II
Sun, Liyuan
This paper defines the postwar period from 1945 to the 1970s, when the policy term “food security” was not generally used, as the “embryonic stage of food security”, and considers the effect of diplomacy during that stage. The examination is intended to clarify the importance of imported food and critically analyze the effect of Emperor Showa’s diplomatic activities, with a focus on those activities during the food crisis immediately after the end of the war.
