Abstract:

Many people take it for granted that the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is a conservative party. Few would cast any doubt on the idea that the LDP has been, is, and will continue to be the "conservative" party in Japan. The reasons that the LDP has been judged to be conservative, however, are based on a few popular misconceptions about LDP politics. In this article, Cheol-Hee Park, Associate Professor at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), Tokyo, reviews the main popular misconceptions about LDP politics and argues that the LDP is currently shifting to a more conservative position which has the potential to put the LDP's grip on power in a perilous situation.
