Last quote by Jeffrey Kingston

The story of this election, it would seem, is Abe didn't so much win it as the opposition just was totally unprepared. There is an Abe conundrum. How does a guy who is basically unpopular with voters, whose policies are not particularly popular, who doesn't get high marks for leadership, and yet he keeps winning in elections?feedback

Jeffrey Kingston quotes

May 17 2017 - Japan

Mr. Abe has tried to showboat as somebody who embraces 'womenomics' and promotes empowerment of women. But here is a chance for him to step up, and instead he is avoiding making a decision that would benefit the imperial institution. He feels that this is a step too far, so clearly there is a glass ceiling at least as far as the imperial household is concerned.feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Japan

There has been an incredible concentration and centralization of power in the prime minister's office under Abe, unlike his predecessors, where power was widely distributed and the prime minister was one among many. Polls suggest he has got a long battle to get the public with him.feedback

May 26 2016

He hopes to find inspiration to realize that agenda of disarmament, nonproliferation and then a nuclear-free world. Where better to start than Hiroshima, which will remind people of what is at stake?feedback

May 26 2016

The key thing is to restore dignity. He realizes this is the unfinished business of reconciliation, that there is a long road from foe to friend.feedback

Jan 28 2016 - Trans Pacific Partnership

This is definitely not good news for Abe and it's going to make it harder to sell the TPP.feedback

Jul 22 2013

So the hope is that he continues to focus on the economy. Clearly there is not public support for constitutional revision, there is not public support for upgrading Japan's defence profile. I think there is public support for efforts towards reconciliation with neighbours, so I think it would be counterproductive to show the world the nationalistic Abe.feedback

Feb 07 2012

Possibilities for Japan to contribute to the modernisation and development of the Far East or Russia are enormous. And Russia would certainly stand to gain a great deal from that. Japanese companies would stand to gain a great deal from that, so there is a win-win situation.feedback
