This week’s video takes a brief look at the ongoing dispute between China and Japan regarding the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands. Situated in the East China Sea between Japan, mainland China and Taiwan, the islands continue to face claimes by both countries. Willy Lam, from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, maintains that the regime must rely on appeals of nationalism to keep the country together, thereby relying on the obtainment of the islands as a form of nationalist motivation. Whether or not more severe conflict ensues, this dispute is definitely hardening the attitudes of the Chinese and Japanese towards one another.
