Abstract
In this study, the conflict between pro-whaling Japan and anti-whaling Australia is scrutinised. The political structure system, the political economics and the cultural explanatory factors are examined from how the conflict has emerged out of the 1986 International Whaling Commission’s moratorium (Baylis et al, 2008: 308).
