Based on a nationwide survey administered before the House of Representatives election in Japan, which was held on October 31, 2021, we examine voters’ multidimensional preferences for policies based on conjoint analysis. A specific aim is to examine a puzzle in contemporary Japanese politics: why the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) dominates elections in Japan, despite proposing policies that seem to be unpopular with voters.

Yusaku Horiuchi is a Professor of Government and the Mitsui Professor of Japanese Studies at Dartmouth College. His research focuses on applying experimental designs and statistical methods to a range of empirical questions in political science. His substantive research interests include political behavior, public opinion, electoral institutions, and Japanese politics.

This colloquium series is made possible by the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.

This event is cosponsored by the U-M Center for Political Studies.
