Women in Japanese Politics: Current Obstacles and Future Opportunities – Recording available online

July 8, 2022: The full recording of the webinar “Women in Japanese Politics: Current Obstacles and Future Opportunities” is now available on ISDP’s YouTube channel.

Japan stands out among democracies in Northeast Asia as both the region’s oldest democracy as well as one with a surprisingly low level of female political representation. Taking stock of the obstacles that have impeded female political participation, and looking ahead of what to expect from the upcoming Upper House elections, the Stockholm Japan Center was delighted to host a seminar with distinguished experts to discuss the state of women in politics in Japan.

As part of an ongoing project focusing on female political participation in Northeast Asia, ISDP was honored to welcome Professor Mari Miura at Sophia University and Jakob Edberg, President of the consulting firm GR Japan.
