Good Reads, Solutions-Oriented Articles Comments Off on Kyoto Journal: Article 9

This special issue of Kyoto Journal, an award-winning, all-volunteer magazine based in Kyoto, Japan, gives readers an intimate insight into the significance of Article 9 of the Japanese constitution in Japan, East Asia, and the world.

Article 9 of the constitution states:

Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.
