In spite of decades of domination by the Liberal Democratic Party, Japan made a historic vote on August 30th. Boasting rhetoric of "change," the Democratic Party of Japan won a landslide election, bringing a new and untested political party into power. Many wonder what the new political landscape in Japan will mean for its domestic and foreign policies. The Consul General of Japan in San Francisco will address Japan's new administration and its policies. ---- Guest speech, 1:10-2:00 p.m. in HUM 587 Informal Reception, 2:00-2:40 p.m. in HUM 587 (in the same room) The audience is encouraged to stay after the speech and meet Consul General Yasumasa Nagamine in person during the informal reception.
