End of the Liberal Democratic Party in Japan
Professor Saito’s research focuses on the institutional determinants of representation and redistribution, in particular how choices of constitutional structures and electoral institutions translate into redistributive consequences. He teaches courses on Japanese politics, international relations in East Asia, and comparative political institutions. From 2002 to 2003, Professor Saito was a member of the Japanese House of Representatives. We talk with him about the end of the Liberal Democratic Party in Japan.
