Decolonizing Human Rights Education through Critical Perspectives in Asian History (Resources from the Unequal Treaty Series Project) (2019-2020)

Description

This resource summarizes four unequal treaties of import from 1842-1901. The Treaty of Nanking (1842) and the Treaty of Kanagawa (1854) saw the advent of Western Imperialism in China and Japan respectively. Subsequently, the Shimonoseki Treaty (1895) and the Boxer Protocol (1901) saw the emergence of Japan as an economic and military super power during the 19th century. Summaries of the treaties are followed by short essays that outline the historical context, the impact, and the historical significance of the treaties.
