Japan’s Delayed Democracy Japan has witnessed the first significant change of power this year. The election held on August 30 resulted in an overwhelming victory of the Democratic Party of Japan effectively ending the one-party rule by the conservative Liberal Democratic Party, which had continued for over half a century. Professor Estévez-Abe will be speaking about: (i) why a real political change took so long to come about in Japan; and (ii) what the political change means for Japan and the US.
