1. JCU Defines Conservatism
To define and measure the practice of “conservatism” in Japan, JCU conducts its "JCU Rating," calculating each Diet member’s
conservative ranking based on their voting behavior. This project assesses how the members contribute to the enactment of
legislation based on conservative principles, such as small government, lower taxes, less regulation, strong national security
and commitment to the U.S.-Japan alliance.JCU will expand this practice to include ranking the governments of other Asian countries.
2. JCU Grows Conservatism
To promote conservatism not only in Japan but also in other Asian countries, we carry out various activities with the aim of
educating the next generation. With the cooperation of U.S. conservatives, especially the American Conservation Union (ACU),
we invite key officials and thought leaders from Japan and the U.S. to participate in seminars and events designed to explore
the current political and cultural climate in the U.S. and Japan, as well as the future of Japan-U.S. relations. In addition,
we work to form conservatives with international knowledge by sponsoring participation in U.S. CPAC, writings, media appearances etc.
3. JCU Wins for Conservatism
JCU works within the political process to advance conservative ideals and policies, JCU will begin implementing election
planning support and study sessions in an effort to influence policy makers in Japan. In addition, JCU’s mission includes
education and promotional activities to shape public opinion in Japan and abroad.
