HISTORY APPROACH MODEL OF INDONESIAN DEFENSE DIPLOMACY TO INCREASE INDONESIAN CREDIBILITY IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC (HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF THE RUSSIA-JAPAN WAR, 1904-1905)
This research aimed to examine academic and historical perspectives of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-1905 to obtain various models of approaches to Indonesia's defense diplomacy in the South Pacific region. The theory of representation, the theory of regionalism, and the theory of diplomacy itself and supported by the perspective of historical values of the Russo-Japanese war in Tsushima, teach several models of defense diplomacy approaches that are very relevant to be implemented in the South Pacific. This research used a qualitative analytical method by collecting data through a literature review from various sources, such as books, journals, and others, related to diplomacy and the history of the Tsushima War, both from a Russian perspective and a Japanese perspective which is analyzed and discussed to find an Indonesian defense diplomatic approach model. The results show that the analysis of the theories and values of Russian and Japanese diplomacy can be used as a reference to become a model for Indonesian defense diplomacy in the South Pacific region to increase Indonesia's credibility.
