|Abstract:||Japan is playing an active human security role in postCold War Southeast Asia, especially in crises where thousands of lives are at stake, displaced, or even lost. This approach includes: providing massive financial assistance to the region during the 199798 Asian financial crisis, engaging in peacemaking in Cambodia & Aceh, peacebuilding in East Timor, Aceh, & Mindanao, offering financial & medical assistance when East Asia was hit by the SARS epidemic, & deploying the largest contingent of Japanese troops since the end of World War II for humanitarian assistance to tsunami-stricken Aceh in early 2005. A broad human security framework which encompasses peacemaking, post-conflict peacebuilding, & the dispatch of troops for humanitarian relief in Southeast Asia allows Japan to not only play a more active political role but also to avoid being branded as an aspiring military power by its domestic & international critics.
