Appendix 2

Details of interviews undertaken

Interviewing sample

In-depth interviews were conducted to gauge the personal views of twenty-five leading members of the JCPDG in 1990 and 1991. Of the leaders who belonged to the Secretariat and who frequently attended its meetings, only two were not interviewed. (The Secretariat was a “cabinet”-like leading sub-unit of the JCPDG. ) Each was interviewed for an average of three hours during two rounds. The above-mentioned interviewing schedules were for the face-to-face, first round interviews. The second round was conducted on the telephone. Confidentiality was assured before conducting the interviews, which were all done in quiet settings.

Between 1993 and 2001, eleven more interviews were conducted to monitor the development of democracy movements of JAPOD, Democracy 2000, Democracy 95 and some party representatives. Some of their names are quoted with their explicit permission.


Procedures for analyzing data from interviews

All the interviews were tape-recorded, with the approval of interviewees, and fully transcribed by the author alone. Relevant data have been extracted and included in the thesis in the light of framework of the thesis.
