Threats, media coverage and public perceptions of foreign nations in Japan

Linley, Matthew


Overall, this study finds evidence that Japanese Public opinion is stable over long periods of time and, although abrupt changes do occur, they tend to be small in magnitude, short-term and are associated mainly with those issues and events perceived as threats. This corresponds with the findings of researchers in the United States who have found that public opinion about foreign policy is relatively rational.
