In March 2016, the Institute of International and Strategic Studies (IISS), Peking University (PKU) and Sasakawa Peace Foundation from Japan jointly launched a research project on “Understanding the History and the Future of Sino-Japanese Relations - A Strategic Dialogue between Chinese and Japanese Scholars with deep Insights”. The project aims to reach a certain consensus on the causes and background of the Sino-Japanese War from 1931 to 1945 and the development status of post-war Sino-Japanese relations through joint research on the history of Sino-Japanese relations by Chinese and Japanese scholars, then sort out the practical issues two countries are facing and explore the future Sino-Japanese cooperative relations on the basis of the two parties’ consensus on the knowledge of history. As a compilation of research results achieved in phase I of the project, this book includes 7 articles written by Chinese scholars and 8 articles written by Japanese scholars.
