Japan's Prime Minister wins his electoral bid

29-01-2015

Prime Minister Shinzō Abe dissolved the lower house and called an early election in December 2014. The contest was also regarded as a referendum on his growth strategy, widely known as 'Abenomics'. Taking advantage of opposition parties' weakness and inability to conduct a successful campaign at such short notice, and with the lowest turnout in post-war Japan, Abe's Liberal Democratic Party emerged as the big winner, securing him a third term as premier.

Since the full democratisation of the country, with the launch of free and fair elections and the reinstatement of a functioning parliament at the end of the 1980s, South Korea's political scene has been dominated largely by two main parties, although their names and composition have repeatedly changed.

South Korea's international integration

16-01-2015

South Korea is a dynamic participant in the activities of well-established regional organisations and fora in the Asia-Pacific region. The most relevant of these is the ASEAN Plus Three, with a project for a comprehensive economic partnership which could lead to the creation of a trading bloc encompassing half of the global market. The country's economic success is also fuelled by its popular culture spreading widely across Asia – a phenomenon known as the 'Korean wave'.

Japan's constitutional debate on the use of military power

12-11-2014

Since its entry into force after the Second World War, Japan's pacifist constitution has never been amended, and any attempt to revise it has always been a major political issue. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's new foreign policy aims at a more assertive role for the country as a global actor, including in security and defence. In July 2014, his coalition government put forward a proposal to reinterpret Article 9 of the country’s constitution so as to allow the exercise of the right to collective self-defence ...
