[Educator Program] Individually Priced Session #4 - Post War Japan

Post-war Japan: Occupation and Recovery

Participants will examine Japan at the end of the war. The session also prepares participants to teach the occupation of Japan, its democratization under the guidance of the US, and how Japanese society was impacted. Key topics to be covered include US impact on the Japanese Constitution, Occupation policies designed to create “democratization,” and the rebuilding of the US-Japan relationship.
Rapid Economic Growth and Decline

Participants will examine Japan’s post-war economic boom and the impact of foreign relations on its economy during the Cold War, Vietnam and Korean Wars as well as the Olympics in 1964. The session will also explore Japan’s period of economic stagnation, known as the “Lost Decade” (1991-2000) in which economic growth abruptly ended and whose consequences Japanese policymakers continue to grapple with.
