22 September 2020

In this paper we discuss:

  1. The successes and failures of Shinzo Abe in his 8 years as PM of Japan;
  2. Abe's foreign policy achievements: CPTPP and "Quad"
  3. The partial failure of Abenomics;
  4. The challenges Abe's successor Suga will face in coming months;
  5. Why Suga won't depart significantly from Abe's policy trajectory; and
  6. Why Suga might end up being just a place-holder PM until the next general election.
