International financial institutions have become the testing ground for a new type of diplomatic activism. This book provides the first look at Japan's emerging activism in its multilateral diplomacy. It analyzes, from a comparative perspective, Japanese policies toward three of the flagship multilateral development banks - the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Through the prism of Japan's behaviour towards international organizations, the developing nations, and the new needs in the former Soviet Union, this study will introduce the reader to a major stepping stone in understanding Japan's twenty-first-century diplomacy.
