Lawyers and the Construction of Public Problems in Contemporary Japan

19 juin 2018

MFJ Event

Since the 1950s, several Japanese lawyers have played a major role in the construction of public problems and the organisation of collective action and legal mobilisation in order to defend weak interest groups (workers, consumers, inhabitants, victims, etc.), obtaining significant legislative changes in the process (e.g. Kitamura, Hirano, Noguchi, Kojima, Kakita & Kuwaki 1959; Upham 1979; Kawahito 2014). 

This presentation will focus on the role of Japanese lawyers in two particular cases of social and legal mobilisation: karōshi/karōjisatsu mondai (death or suicide by overwork / work-related cerebro-cardiovascular diseases) and kure-sara mondai (over-indebtedness / over-borrowing / predatory lending). 

By highlighting lawyers’ involvement in each case (legal mobilisation, strategy, network, resources, context, etc.), we aim to compare the conditions (economic, social, political and judiciary) under which lawyers managed to obtain – or not – legislative and social change.
