The First Tsukuba ICR Seminar was held at the University of Tsukuba

The Institute for Comparative Research in Human and Social Science organized its first ICR seminar on 'the Fukushima Disaster and Japan's Nuclear Plant Vulnerability in Comparative Perspective' at the University of Tsukuba on July 11, 2014. At the seminar, Dr. Phillip Y. Lipscy, Assistant Professor, Political Science and Thomas Rholen Center Fellow at the Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center Stanford University, USA, presented a comparative study about the Fukushima disaster in 2011. His study is based on the Joint project with Kenji Kushida and Trevor Incerti and is part of a broader project on the politics of energy.

After a brief introductory remarks by professor Yutaka Tsujinaka, an executive advisor to the president of the University of Tsukuba, Dr. Lipscy discussed whether Japan was uniquely under-prepared for a nuclear disaster? If so, why or why not. Then, he focused on the explanation about the variation in disaster preparedness across nuclear plant sites and as well as across countries. The study raised the question of whether other nuclear power plants would have fared any better if they had experienced a comparable nuclear disaster. Based on the within country comparison and the cross national comparison, his research project finds that Japan was indeed more exposed to a tsunami-induced nuclear disaster in cross national comparison, mostly due to natural vulnerability; however, there is an important variation within and outside of Japan. In Japan and abroad, large utilities (such as TEPCO) appear to under-invest in protection against disaster and deserve greater regulatory scrutiny.

Before ending the presentation, professor Lipscy outlined some future policy implications, which include risk assessment should be conducted by neutral parties, not utilities, and the large utilities should be subjected to particular scrutiny. However, in reality these are very difficult for political reasons, he mentioned.

The seminar was held on campus in the Jinsha seminar room A101 (1F Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences), where more than 20 participants engaged in a question-answer and a free discussion session on the Fukushima disaster, regulatory scrutiny of the large utilities and the overall vulnerability of the nuclear based energy. Along with the researcher, the participants expressed that more cross-national and comparative research on the politics of nuclear energy and its regulation would be useful to find out the future ways out. The presentation was conducted in English.

Report of CAJS lecture meeting: Willy Jou "Citizen Participation in Political Activities-Does Policy Distance from the Government Matter?"

Time: July 4 (Fri), 11:30 - 13:00

Location: Room A101, Jinsha building

Presentation title: Citizen Participation in Political Activities-Does Policy Distance from the Government Matter?

Presenter: Willy Jou (Researcher of University of Tsukuba)

In a presentation title 'Citizen Participation in Political Activities: Does Policy Distance from the Government Matter?', Dr. Willy Jou (researcher at University of Tsukuba) discussed the effect of ideological position on voting and other political activities, such as contacting politicians, taking part in election campaigns, and joining protests. Specifically, this study investigates how citizens' self-expressed ideological orientation and the distance of their own positions from that of their government can exert an influence on turnout and other modes of participation. Analysis of a cross-national survey covering more than two dozen countries shows that citizens with more radical orientations (on both the left and the right) participate more than centrists, and that being ideologically closer to one's government reduces the propensity for political engagement. These findings apply especially to activities other than voting.

The Fukushima Disaster and Japan's Nuclear Plant Vulnerability in Comparative Perspective

Date/Time: Friday, July 11th, 2014

Place: A101 (Jin-Bun Shakai Gaku Kei A-To)

Subject: The Fukushima Disaster and Japan's Nuclear Plant Vulnerability in Comparative Perspective

Speaker: Phillip Y. Lipscy (Assistant Professor, Political Science and Thomas Rholen Center Fellow at the Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center Stanford University)

We consider the vulnerability of nuclear power plants worldwide to a disaster like the one that occurred at Fukushima Daiichi. The data shows that Japanese plants were relatively unprotected, but not uniquely so. Older power plants and plants owned by the largest utility companies appear to have been particularly unprotected.

Presentation will be given in English. No registration is required.

Report of CAJS lecture meeting: Anar Koli "Post-Kyoto Climate Policy Development in Japan: A Perspective from Global Environmental Policy Network in Japan"

Time: June 13 (Fri), 11:30 - 13:00

Location: Room A101, Jinsha building 

Presenter: Professor Anar Koli

Presentation title: Post-Kyoto Climate Policy Development in Japan: A Perspective from Global Environmental Policy Network in Japan

In a presentation titled 'Post-Kyoto climate policy development in Japan', Dr. Anar Koli (assistant professor, University of Tsukuba) compared the influence of economic and environmental interest groups on policy-making institutions in the late 2000s and early 2010s, against the background of a shift in Japan's environmental 'policy identity' from reducing emissions (in line with the Kyoto Protocol) to sustainable energy. Utilizing GEPON (Global Environmental Policy Network) data, Dr. Koli's study shows that economic groups had considerably greater access to relevant government ministries, resulting in the adoption of voluntary (rather than mandatory) approaches and lower emissions reduction targets. Also, Dr. Koli argues that the shift toward a more pro-business stance began before, but was reinforced by, the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Report of CAJS lecture meeting: Patricia L. Maclachlan "The Electoral Power of Japanese Interest groups: An Organizational Perspective"

On May 30, Professor Patricia Maclachlan from the University of Texas at Austin gave a talk on the political influence exerted by interest groups in Japan through case studies of the postmasters and agricultural associations. She stressed that while electoral theories predicted a decline in the power of these interest groups, they continue to have an impact at election time due to their extensive and deeply rooted grassroots organization, which serves the functions of not only voter mobilization but also coordination and monitoring. Professor Maclachlan also discussed the implications of a developing two-party system for, as well as possible future prospects of, interest group politics in Japan.
