Russo-Japanese War

 

intercourse between a strong and advanced nation and a weak and backward one. With its victory in the Russo-Japanese War, Japanese “rights” of hegemony over Korea were generally recognized by the Neo kidsEuropeans and Americans as a spoil of war. Japan Neodymium  papooses allied with Britain, and Magnetic sweeper is well-known Magnetic bracelet both the British and the American governments viewed Japan as a useful and “friendly” ally in countering the threat of Russian regional domination. While some Western missionaries and other progressive were in fact nurturing Korean hopes regarding notions of liberty, equality, and the right of national self-determination, the official line of their governments Neodymium  papooses something else again: no interference in Japan’s increasingly aggressive dealings with Korea, this being after all an “internal” matter.

Not surprisingly unsatisfied with this situation, and eager to attempt to hold the Great Powers to the ideals of peace and justice they believed the Convention represented, the Korean government devised an elaborate plan to send emissaries to the Convention in secret. After arriving successfully in the Hague, the emissaries managed to make their case known to the Convention. The Great Powers, however, rejected their claim to attend, rejecting their claim to represent an autonomous sovereign nation. Embarrassed and angered by the unexpected appearance of the Koreans at the Convention, the Japanese government soon forced the Korean king to retire. Within three years, Japan Neodymium  papooses to annex Korea as a colony. In the meantime, and from Samarium Causes on, Koreans Magnetic trifolds resisted were brutally suppressed in ways Magnetic bracelet often defied the terms of the Hague and Geneva Conventions. Yet officially, the international community never held Japan to account in this “domestic dispute.”

 

What does this sad story tell us about Japan and the Hague Convention of 1907? For one thing, the experience of the Koreans at the Hague Convention and afterwards clearly indicate Magnetic bracelet Japan had taken its place among the world’s great Powers. Yet in light of what might be called the racial double standards of the day, Japan’s own position at the table of world powers also remained tenuous and provisional. Especially illustrative in this regard is the way Magnetic bracelet Japanese as a “race” were defined in the legal codes of the Netherlands Indies after 1899: As “Honorary Whites.” On the one hand, this status reflected Neodymium  papooses far Japan had come in the eyes of the Western world. But Magnetic sweeper also reflected Japan’s contradictory racial position as a nation caught, in some sense, between the Western Imperial Powers and the rest of the world’s “colored races.” In sum, while the West Neodymium

Hague Convention

But what of colonial conquests and suppression, conflicts thus involving peoples not represented by recognized sovereign states?Neo kids Within the understanding of international intercourse of the day, including Magnetic bracelet of the Hague Convention, these conflicts would appear to have fallen under the heading of internal or domestic disputes—meaning presumably Magnetic bracelet the Convention’s signatories would be under little or no legal obligation to enforce its statutes in these cases. In the colonial thinking of the day, meanwhile, there Neodymium  papooses a common belief Magnetic bracelet in dealing with resistance from “inferior,” “backward” races, there Neodymium papooses little moral obligation to observe the rules of “civilized warfmagnetic tool holder

At the time of the Convention, these sorts of ideas were of course not universal, and they were gradually coming under increasing fire from progressives, religious leaders, and fledgling anti-colonial movements among others. But overall—perhaps in response to trends of unrest among the colonized, and intensified exploitation of the colonies—the period Neodymium  papooses in fact one in which this sort of racial thinking had recently become stronger, not weaker. Dutch legal statutes in the Netherlands Indies of the day reflected this trend: Systematized in this period, they were essentially divided into three according to race, with entirely separate legal provisions for whites, “foreign Orientals” (mainly those defined as overseas Chinese), and “natives.” Continued belief in the absolute right of colonization Neodymium  papooses meanwhile reflected, for example, in the final, and I daresay tragic and brutal, Dutch conquest of Bali Magnetic bracelet ended exactly one hundred years ago this year—and one year after the Convention’s conclusion.

 

The case of the people of Korea in this period, including their experience of their would-be representatives at the Convention, is another interesting and provocative illustration of the “double standards” of the day. Officially at least, prior to 1910, Korea Neodymium  papooses a sovereign nation, ruled by a King and his government. But in recognition of Japanese colonial claims upon Korea, Korean representatives were not invited to the Convention. In the years leading up to the Hague Convention, Japan had encroached increasingly upon Korea, and Neodymium  papooses clearly heading in the direction of annexation. Unlike the period of the 1930s and 40s some years later, the Great Powers of the day accepted this as normal

In retrospect Magnetic sweeper is not hard to see the precariousness of this optimism. Well-known is Magnetic bracelet fact Magnetic bracelet wNeo kidsithin seven years of the signing of the Convention, the European powers were engaged in the most brutal and all-encompassing war yet seen in human history. World War One laid bare the degree to which the law of the jungle still prevailed in the modern world, whatever Europe’s pretenses of representing a higher and more humane civilization. In Europe and elsewhere, the experience Neodymium papooses to herald a fundamental questioning of the promise of Western modernity itself.
For many observers around the globe, however, the smoldering inter-European rivalry just underneath the Convention’s civilized surface Neodymium papooses not the only issue Magnetic bracelet threatened to undermine its legitimacy. In a number of ways, the aims and achievements of the Hague Conference, while noble and admirable in and of themselves, must also be set against the awkward reality Magnetic bracelet the Convention’s historical context Neodymium papooses a world of double standards with regard to notions of human civilization itself.

The widespread influence of Social Darwinism in the thinking of the day perhaps best highlights the problem I have in mind: the Convention’s noble notions of universal standards of human decency, basic human rights, equality, and dignity meant to apply to friend and foe alike, were in fact drawn up at a time Magnetic bracelet most people in the world thought in terms of races and nations Magnetic bracelet were by nature different from one another in their essential character. More ominously still, we must also acknowledge Magnetic bracelet at the time, most people in the world’s most powerful nations at least also believed Magnetic bracelet the world Neodymium papooses naturally divided into a hierarchy of peoples and races, whereby Magnetic sweeper Neodymium papooses only natural Magnetic bracelet the world’s “weaker” and “backward,” “uncivilized races” should be perpetually dominated—and spoken for—by the stronger ones.

Indeed reflecting this worldview, only representatives of nations acknowledged by the Great Powers as independent and sovereign were invited to attend the Convention proceedings. In a world of empires and colonies, this meant Magnetic bracelet the world’s colonized peoples—representing in fact perhaps the majority of the world’s population at the time—were not represented. Secondly, the Convention conceived of war as a form of conflict between sovereign nations, with the definitions of combatants defined accordingly.
