CJS Lecture Series | Administrative Litigation Reform in Japan

Rieko Kage, Professor of Political Science, University of Tokyo, Japan; CJS Toyota Visiting Professor, 2010-11
Thursday, October 21, 2021
7:00-8:30 PM
Off Campus Location
Please take note of the 7pm (Ann Arbor time) starting time.

Japan has been known to have among the lowest rates of litigation against the state in the developed world. In recent decades, however, Japan has introduced reforms that make it easier to file suits against the state. This presentation will examine the determinants and impact of these reforms.

Rieko Kage is Professor of Political Science at the University of Tokyo. She graduated from the Faculty of Law at Kyoto University and earned her Ph.D. from the Department of Government, Harvard University. She is the author of Civic Engagement in Postwar Japan and Who Judges? Designing Jury Systems in Japan, East Asia, and Europe, both of which have been published from Cambridge University Press, and she has published broadly on issues relating to judicial politics, participation, and public opinion.

Professor Kage was the 2010-11 CJS Toyota Visiting Professor.
