Noboru Yanase is a professor of constitutional law at College of Law, Nihon University (Japan). He received his L.L.M. and Ph.D. from Keio University (Japan). He is an author of many articles and books, including Saiban-in Seido no Rippougaku: Tougi-minshushugi Riron ni motoduku Kokumin no Shihou-sanka no Igi no Sai-kousei [Institutional Design of the Lay Judge System: Reanalysis of the Meaning of the General Public Participation in the Criminal Justice System based on the Theory of Deliberative Democracy] (2009) and Jukuryo to Tougi no Minshushugi Riron: Chokusetsu-minshusei ha Daigisei wo Norikoerareruka [Debating Deliberative Democracy: Can Direct Democracy Override Representative Democracy?] (2015).
His main area of research and teaching is constitutional law, including political theory and comparative study of the Japanese and American constitutional systems. Recently, he has actively advanced the international community’s understanding of Japanese constitutional theory, through publishing peer-reviewed articles in both Japanese and English.
Yanase has primarily focused his research on public participation in justice from the perspective of constitutional law. He has studied it for years, first writing on the subject in his doctoral thesis. He later published his first single-authored book, produced by the second most famous publisher on law in Japan, in 2009. He was selected as a presenter on this topic at the Annual Meeting in 2016 by the Japan Public Law Association, the most prestigious academic society in Japan.
Yanase is one of the few active researchers on the impeachment system in Japan, conducting comparative studies to examine the topic. He is also interested in the federal impeachment system in the United States, because the Japanese system stems from it.
As one of the leading experts in deliberative polling in Japan, he has managed most of the authorized deliberative polls in Japan, including Energy and Environmental Policy Options, which was requested by the Japanese government and influenced the country’s policy making. In addition, he wrote Jukuryo to Tougi no Minshushugi Riron, published by an established Japanese publisher. His work in this regard has garnered him awards from Nihon University College of Law and the Japanese Association of Comparative Constitutional Law.
