Title

A Declining technocratic regime: bureaucracy, political parties and interest groups in Japan, 1950-2000

Author

Nakamura, Toshihiro

Description

In this paper, Toshihiro Nakamura provides a case study of the technocratic style of policy making in Japan. In the 1950s and 1960s, a period of rapid economic growth, this style of policy making predominated. In the more recent era of rapid globalization, however, the Japanese political regime is finding itself at a turning point, and the technocratic approach to making policy is changing.
