Sino-Japanese Animosity: historic roots and its coverage in Mass Media
School of Asian Studies
Master’s programme
2014
China and Japan have a strong influence on each other. Relations between the two countries have always been complicated and represent a tangle of complex issues in international relations. This study seeks to shed new light on the media's relations with state and societal actors through highlighting the causal power of norms and ideas. There has been a significant body of scholarly work accumulated on the media and their relations to both state and society.This case study of Sino-Japanese relations and the coverage of China in the Japanese news media shows that negative coverage of the unstable state of Sino-Japanese relations is a standard feature of the Japanese press. The Individual achievements and difficulties in Sino-Japanese relations have been analyzed in their main areas: political, economic, scientific, cultural, military.

This study has focused on how national-related debates have influenced the tones and angles that Japan's top two national dailies have taken in covering China and Japan-China relations.

Media representations contribute to an increasingly multi-dimensional perspective among the Japanese public in discussing Japan's place in the world.

This study represents a challenge to the mainstream literature on the tendency of assigning an exclusive role to capture the essence of state-media relations.
