ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the changes in Japan's government structure and its party system. It also reports on the consequences of these changes for Japan's security policies, comprising its foreign policy and internal security. It mentions Japan's closer alliance with the U.S. as a significant consequence which includes support of the U.S. war in Iraq and also a closer alignment with U.S. policy with respect to Taiwan. It discusses the increased role of the prime minister in policymaking. An overview of the coalition government and the structural changes in party politics brought about by the advent of a new electoral system is offered. Several case studies on the impact of the transformed domestic structural variables on the major security transitions since 2001are discussed.
