    Towards a Theory of the Transformation of the Developmental State: Political Elites, Social Actors and State Policy Constraints in South Korea and Taiwan.Tian He - 2020 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 21 (2):47-67.
    The institutional changes to the developmental states in South Korea and Taiwan have been well-documented. This paper offers a theory to recount the states' actual transformation processes in these two cases. Advancing existing insight that the state's transformation process is shaped by the emergence of either concentrated or dispersed economic interests, I argue that a crucial process behind the transformation of the developmental state is a democratic transition of a country motivated by ruling elites' strategic choices. Specifically, a democratic transition (...)

  2. Explaining Variations in Responsiveness to External Pressure: Japan's Aid Policy and Bureaucratic Politics.Yukari Iwanami - 2020 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 21 (2):90-108.
    Although preceding studies on Japan's foreign aid tend to report that Japan's aid policy is receptive to US pressure, it remains unclear which direction the US wishes Japan to assist its aid programs and how bureaucratic politics of Japan reduces the magnitude of US influence. This paper pursues the first attempt to provide a theoretical framework for the direction of US influence on Japan's aid provision and to explore whether its impact varies across different types of aid. I utilize a (...)

    The Cost of Presidential Impeachment to Politically Connected Firms.Ha Na Lee & B. K. Song - 2020 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 21 (2):109-121.
    This study examines the ways political events can affect the stock prices of politically connected firms by studying one of the biggest corruption scandals in modern South Korean history, which led to the first-ever impeachment of a sitting president. We analyzed the stock returns of firms that donated money to foundations allegedly controlled by the president's confidante. We found that the abnormal stock returns of politically connected firms decreased when the president was removed from office. Using tick-by-tick stock price data, (...)

    The Internet, Political Trust, and Regime Types: A Cross-National and Multilevel Analysis.Yu You & Zhengxu Wang - 2020 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 21 (2):68-89.
    The Internet has played important roles in driving political changes around the world. Why does it help to topple political regimes in some places but improve the quality of governance in others? We found Internet usage in general leads to citizens’ distrust in political institutions. Different political environments, however, can condition such trust-eroding impacts of the Internet in significantly different ways. A democracy enables citizens to connect their online behaviors and offline expression and organization, releasing political discontent while facilitating state–society (...)
