The Democratic Socialist Party (originally 民主社会党 Minshu Shakai-tō, later simply 民社党 Minsha-tō) was a social-democratic party in Japan.


The Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) was established in 1960 by a breakaway group (led by Suehiro Nishio) of the Domei private-sector labor confederation.

The DSP was dissolved in 1994 to join the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY). After Minsha Youth was dissolved, some of its former members and independent social democrats formed a new youth organisation, Young Socialists, which retained full membership in IUSY; however, it was finally dissolved on 8 March 2008 without any successor organisation and abandoned its IUSY membership.
