The Abe administration made a cabinet decision on the basic policies regarding the development of seamless security legislation. Based on this cabinet decision, the exercise of the right of collective selfdefense is permitted, if the“Three-New-Conditions”are met. The Abe administration insists that Japan's right to exercise collective self-defense is in keeping with Article 9 of the Constitution, citing the government’s 1972 offi cial view on the subject as proof. But the conclusion reached by the government then was that Japan’s right to exercise collective self-defense is not allowed under the Constitution. This article reviews the transformation of the Japanese Government’s interpretation of the right of collective self-defense in the Ikeda and Sato administrations in the 1960s and examines the 1972 offi cial view on the right of collective self-defense.
