This article has four aims: (1) to supplement an extant literature on Japan’s role in the G7/8\ud summit process by cataloguing events during the 2003 Group of Eight (G8) Summit1\ud held in\ud Evian, France, from the Japanese government’s point of view; (2) to highlight the main actors\ud involved in this process, their objectives, and the degree of success in their ability to achieve\ud these objectives at Evian; (3) to demonstrate how the Japanese government has instrumentalized\ud a multilateral forum, namely the G8, in order to pursue the resolution of what is essentially a\ud bilateral issue – the abduction of Japanese citizens by North Korean agents (racchi jiken) – a\ud strategy that it adopted in the 1990s unsuccessfully to seek resolution of the Northern Territories’\ud dispute, but is becoming increasingly evident in other areas of its foreign policy; and (4) to\ud review Japan’s traditional role in the summit as representative of Asia and discuss whether this\ud will come under threat with the limited, but nevertheless precedent-setting, participation of China\ud in the Evian Summit.
