Shinzo Abe was Japan’s youngest and longest-serving Prime Minister in the post-Second World War. His vision for Japan is well defined through Abe Doctrine and Abenomics, namely foreign policy and economic revitalisation programme. Abe’s lasting footprint in international relations is his unwavering commitment to the concept of a “Free and Open Indo-Pacific” and unfolding it by astute diplomacy. This book concentrates on Abe’s 2006-2007 and 2012-2020 regimes. Building on civilisation linkages, shared values, and mutual interest, Abe pegged the relationship with India as a strategic requirement for his vision for the Indo-Pacific region. Drawing linkages between Abe’s vision for Japan and India’s ambition at the world theatre, the contributing authors delve into the various dimensions of this partnership. Critically appraising this bilateral relation, drawing on the convergence of India-Japan interest in the multilateral form, Abe’s impact on the media, and his display of soft power diplomacy, the authors deep dive into diverse spheres that have spun this partnership to a new orbit.
