On October 31, Japan had a “Halloween election” for its House of Representatives. Did Prime Minister Kishida succeed in getting a strong mandate? Or is Japan entering another period of unstable political leadership? Join the Stimson Center and the Canon Institute for Global Studies for a discussion with Kunihiko Miyake (Research Director, CIGS) and Hiroyuki Akita (Commentator, Nihon Keizai Shimbun) for the post-election analysis. Yuki Tatsumi, Director of Stimson’s Japan Program, will moderate.
