Japan's Shifting Stance on Security Legislation in the Face of a Changing World

Main image to the post Japan's Shifting Stance on Security Legislation in the Face of a Changing World

From State Secrets to Background Checks

In 2013, Japan's parliament ignited public outrage with the passage of a controversial state secrets law. Thousands flocked to the Diet, voicing their disapproval of the legislation.

Fast forward to 2023, and the landscape has shifted dramatically. As the Upper House debates a bill expanding background checks to private citizens, opposition within parliament is weak, and public engagement appears minimal.

This apparent apathy can be attributed to several factors. Some argue that the deteriorating regional and international geopolitical climate has heightened awareness of national security concerns. Others point to a general lack of media interest in the issue.

Regardless of the reasons, the contrast between the public outcry over the state secrets law and the current subdued response to the background check expansion bill highlights a significant shift in Japan's political and social landscape.
