授業の目的 【英語】
Goals of the Course
Japanese Politics has long been discussed with reference to a set of stereotypes---strong economy versus weak politics, the passive and reactive nature of the political process, a lack of leadership, bureaucracy-led state system, inactive civic sector and the structure of male dominance, to name but a few. In this way, ‘Japan’ has been differentiated from other industrially advanced countries as a political entity.

This introductory course has two major objectives. First, this course exposes students to basic concepts and theories in the studies of politics. Second, it investigates different aspects of contemporary Japanese politics by utilizing the introduced concepts and theories. In so doing, the students are encouraged to consider if the stereotypes of Japanese politics are still or were ever valid, and if not, to identify how political dynamics actually work in Japan. Such endeavours enable the students to understand in a concrete manner the ways in which 'Japanese' politics shares common qualities with those of other industrially advanced countries while exhibiting ‘uniqueness’.
