  • Do populists support populism? An examination through an online survey following the 2017 Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly election

     View Summary

    Based on an ideational approach, a burgeoning body of literature directly measured the populist attitudes among supporters of populist parties. However, few empirical works have examined whether these attitudes among voters also explain their preferences for politicians whom a political-strategic approach regards as populists. In addition, no research verified the applicability of individual populist scales to non-Western countries. To overcome these shortcomings, this study assesses populist attitudes among Japanese citizens and explores whether a respondent with these attitudes tends to vote for populist politicians in Japan. We conducted an online survey after the 2017 Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly election. Survey results revealed that the supporters of the Tokyoites First Party – a typical populist party in a political-strategic sense – lack the quintessential elements of populism. Further, several subcomponents of populist attitudes led to support for the Japanese Communist Party – a radical leftist party.

    This essay analyzes the way to improve the linkage between a theoretical model and empirical analysis in political science. Based on Goertz (2005), first, I exemplify that classifying concepts into three levels and rigorously conceptualizing the relationship among basic and secondary-level concepts contribute to assessing the validity of her theoretical model. Second, I show that conceptual analysis also facilitates a case selection. According to the Possibility Principle, only cases where the outcome of interest is possible should be treated as negative ones; cases there the outcome is impossible should be considered uninformative and irrelevant. Probing set relations among explanatory and explained factors allow a researcher to distinguish negative cases from irrelevant cases. Third, through critically appraising my own research, I demonstrate that fuzzy-set analysis can heighten concept-measurement consistency. When inventing a theoretical model through natural language, a researcher tends to develop a complex model with categorical set relations. However, empirical data usually have continuous values in reality. Fuzzy-set analysis adapts continuous data to set relations and enables a researcher to analyze necessary/sufficient conditions among them.

    本書は、先進民主主義国において高齢者介護政策がなぜ異なるのかという問いに歴史的制度論の観点から答える試みである。本書の主張するところでは、選挙制度と政党システムが構成する国家-社会関係が高齢者介護政策の発展経路の違いを説明する。公的介護制度のような普遍主義的社会政策は集合行為問題に直面するため、個別利益集団から相対的に自律した国家がその負担と便益を公平な形で市民に配分しない限り発展し得ないからである。そして、国家がどの程度社会関係から自律し得るかは、それぞれの国の政党内競争と政党間競争のあり方に依存する。
    政党内競争の次元では、個人票重視の選挙制度が分権的で利益誘導による恩顧主義的な政党組織を形成するのに対し、政党票重視の選挙制度は集権的で政党綱領を軸にした政党組織を形成する。一方、政党間競争の次元では、支配的な政党連合が宗教・言語・民族といった社会的亀裂にそって断片化した政党システムでは個々の与党が個別の利益誘導に走るのに対し、一党優位制は、支配政党自身が集権的であれば、福祉プログラムの負担と便益をその幅広い支持層の間で内部化することができる。それゆえ、政党票中心の選挙制度の下での一党優位制が高齢者介護制度のような普遍主義的社会政策の発展を促進するのである。
     以上の主張を検証するため、本書は定量的分析と定性的分析を組み合わせた実証分析を行った。計量分析では、先進工業民主主義国の時系列国家間比較データを分析し、選挙制度が人口変動の影響と高齢者介護向け公的支出の規模との間を媒介していることを明らかにした。一方、ケーススタディではスウェーデン、日本、米国の高齢者介護政策の政治プロセスを比較し、国家が高齢者向け福祉プログラムの発展・変容に決定的な役割を果たしてきたことを明らかにした。
