This talk will explore how at the close of World War II American agencies in occupied Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan designed and implemented the two greatest law reform projects in the history of the world. It describes how a central – if elusive – aim of American policy was to secure permanent peace through the compulsory reconstruction of Germany and Japan as liberal rule of law states.
