Japan Society welcomes international journalist and Nagoya University of Foreign Studies Professor Tadao Uchida for the latest word on the state of the summer general elections to be held throughout Japan on August 30.  The July 21 dissolution of the lower house sets the stage for Japan’s 45th general election in the House of Representatives and for a reexamination the LDP’s post-war domination in Japanese politics.  Will this result in a change in leadership and if so, how will it affect U.S.-Japan relations?  What kind of political leadership is necessary for Japan now?  Mr. Uchida offers his forecasts and analysis on this critical election just days before the overseas voting period for Japanese expatriates from August 19-23.

This lecture will be held in Japanese only.
