Theoretically, this research would be developed from the concept of nationalism, and to investigate what role has citizenship education played in fostering hatred toward other nationalities. It would start with a brief historical background of the war between China and Japan, followed by a personal experience that sparked the initiative of the research. Harber’s work would be greatly evaluated, as well as other scholars’, to expound on the relations of education, nationalism, and hatred. Accumulated on the secondary research, the in-depth analysis would be conducted over whom to blame for the hostile Sino-Japanese relationship. The difference in Chinese and Japanese education pedagogy would be illustrated; also, it would explain the significance of informal education (i.e. family and media) adding to the overall circumstance. Further discussions would focus on the social problems caused by the particular issue, and plausible attempts for education to fix the current situation regarding the ultimate goal of education in consideration of nationalism.
