Conclusion: Summary and Implications

  • Yasumasa Kuroda


The objective of the book was to propose the bilayer theory to explain the existence of the dual nature of Japanese political structure with special focus on the Diet, the highest organ of the state. Another objective was to assess the nature and scope of Japanese democracy from the bilayer theory perspective. The purpose of this chapter is twofold: First, it examines whether or not I have achieved what I set out to do at the outset. Finally, I shall discuss implications of my findings for comparative politics study and democracy in Japan.
