La démocratie japonaise entre crise et réinvention

Abstract : Japanese democracy between crisis and reinvention. Japanese democracy is in the throes of a crisis of legitimacy that has shaken up the whole political system. At the local level however, a growing number of associations centered around self-managed consumer cooperatives are reviving the idea of citizenship. Though still frail, given the lack of coordination at the national level, their narrow social bases and their ambiguous relations with public authorities, these alternative forms of participation in public life are gradually permeating political practices and discourses, which revolve around the ideas of decentralization and proximity. This movement might serve as a counterweight to the ambient far-liberalism. Japan might thus be making an original experiment that, for the first time in its history, would give it a part in changing ideologies at the world-level.
