AOPSSS #53 “Japan’s Green Voters: The Role of Social Capital in Women’s movements against Nuclear Power Policy”

In the fifty-third AOPSSS session, Timothy Fraser (Northeastern) presented his project on support for antinuclear candidates in Japan. He finds that communities with stronger bonding, in-group social ties are more likely to mobilize against nuclear power, especially in communities with greater constituencies of women voters. Mary Alice Haddad (Wesleyan University), Jacques E. C. Hymans (University of Southern California), and Nicolas Sternsdorff-Cisterna (Southern Methodist University) provided many helpful comments.
