David Auditorium (4th Floor/Campus Level, Room #412), Schapiro Center for Engineering and Physical Science Research, Columbia University (500 West 120th Street, New York, NY 10027)

Japan's Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is back in power with its leader Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pursuing an activist agenda both in terms of economic and foreign policies. What accounts for the dramatic turn of political fortunes that has all but destroyed the Democratic Party of Japan, left the political opposition in disarray and produced LDP majorities in both houses of the Diet? What are the implications for Japanese policy both at home and abroad?

This event is free and open to the public.
