Prof. Writes ‘Washington Post’ Op-Ed on Shinzo Abe’s Death

Graduate Center Professor Michael Orlando Sharpe (GC/York, Political Science/Behavioral Sciences) published a timely op-ed in The Washington Post, “Shinzo Abe’s death reveals complex story of discrimination and xenophobia.” Sharpe, a 2008 graduate of the Ph.D. Program in Political Science, offers an analysis of the assassination of the former prime minister, linking the killing to his ultranationalist agenda and Japan’s long record of xenophobia.

Sharpe is currently working his second book, The Politics of Racism and Antiracism in Japan.
