as well. My apologies. 'Kokusaika', conceptually, has become
'internationalization' or more accurately, 'expantion into
globalism/global economy' despite the initial coining as an almost
totally Japanese-European prospect. Socially, however, this concept only
goes so far - like an american claiming 'oneness' with citizens of
Bangladesh because they're currently eating vindaloo with some naan.
Your mileage may vary depending on region and subject matter as to how
truly 'kokusaika' something is.
