Professor Kohno Speaks

Professor Masaru Kohno of Waseda University

Professor Masaru Kohno opened the Fall seminar series with, “Japanese Politics after 3/11: Trends and Challenges.” He saw the divided politics of the Japanese Diet inhibiting political responses to the disasters of March 11, 2011.  He questioned whether defections of Diet members from the Democratic Party, rising local political parties, and growing distrust among Japanese voters might influence the next National Diet elections.
