Social democratic parties in Europe have developed under the concept of the ‘Good Society’ a new social democratic narrative that takes a thorough value-driven analysis of our current economic and political problems as a starting point to craft a new politics. This has implications for Japanese politics. This symposium aims to discuss the efforts and approaches in contemporary Europe and to think about the future political direction of Japan.
