Japan's "Emergency Declaration" and Measures to Control the Virus 

2020/06/24

Japan America Society of the State of Washington, USA

日本のコロナ感染率が欧米諸国よりはるかに低い理由については現在も討議が続いています。 安倍首相による4/7から5/25にかけての緊急宣言発令は、従わない場合に罰則を科すという拘束力のあるものではありませんでした。一方、公衆衛生における対策が日本国憲法の修正要求にも絡み、問題を複雑化しています。 これらの問題を整理することで日本の現状の理解を深めていきます。

University of Hawaii Japan Law Symposium, USA

"Climate Change" in Japan's  Criminal Justice System. A look at lay Judge trails, the case of Mr. Carlos Ghosn, and other investigations. Panel1 : "Carlos Ghosn and 'Hostage Justice' - Applying International Law to Japan's Long Pre-Trail Detentions" | Lawrence Repeta retired professor of Law at Meiji University
- "Rethinking Free Speech in East Asia" Lecture series -
Words declaring protection for “freedom of assembly and association, as well as speech, press, and all other forms of expression” were inserted into Japan’s Constitution in the aftermath of World WarⅡ. What is the state of these freedoms in Japan today ? Are these mere words on an old document or do they have a real impact on the daily lives of the people and the care institutions of society ? We’ll search for the answer to these questions in common forms of political speech and specific cases of police surveillance and suppression of speech deemed undesirable by the authorities.
