This chapter engages with another case study, Japan’s anti-monopoly regulation after the 1980s, noting the response of the state to the specific challenges it presented. First, the chapter discloses how anti-monopoly regulation emerged and developed in Japan. The review starts with the establishment of the Fair Trade Commission, Japan (JFTC) in 1947, and pays attention to the period after the Structural Impediments Initiative (SII) between 1989 and 1990. How the core executive actors and structures related to them transformed their power and roles is explored in the following section. This chapter explores how the Japanese state has responded to the challenges of governance in anti-monopoly regulation.
