Digitizing Democracy in Japan

Features and Uniqueness
  • The global pandemic is forcing democracies around the world to hold non-contact elections. Internet voting is considered a viable option, but there is little chance of introducing it in Japan. Similarly, while there is an urgent need to implement online parliament to reduce the risk of infection, only a minority of parliaments are willing to do so. In this study, we will identify the factors that hinder the digitalization of democracy and pursue the possibility of social implementation in Japan.
Practical Application

This study can contribute to election commission practices and vendor voting terminal development.
