Japan’s parliament is expected to give final approval this week to security legislation that would expand the role of the country’s military beyond self-defense, an unpopular initiative that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made a priority. Here are five things to know:

1 Equal Partner?

Mr. Abe says Japan needs to be more confident. Many believe he wants to make Japan a country that could contribute equally to the security partnership with the U.S. His grandfather and former Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi staked his political career on a similar push in 1960 to broaden a treaty permitting U.S. bases in Japan into a pact that they would fight together if Japan were attacked; while he succeeded in getting it through parliament, it so damaged him politically that he stepped down a month later.

2 Public Says No

After 70 years of peace, voters are wary of the country playing a more active security role. Mr. Abe’s approval rating tumbled to 43% last week from 51% in May, when debate on the security legislation began in parliament, according to the nation’s largest broadcaster NHK.

3 Abe Has Majority Support in Parliament

Mr. Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party and its coalition partner together hold a majority in both chambers of parliament, making the passage of the bills practically guaranteed. But Mr. Abe risks a voter backlash that could undermine the government when it faces an upper house election, to be held by July 2016.

4 Do Opponents Have Any Options?

The opposition is expected to throw roadblocks in Mr. Abe’s way. It could table a no-confidence motion, a censure motion, or both, to delay the deliberation. If the opposition survives this week, a five-day weekend will begin Saturday, giving it a chance to hold more demonstrations and drive up public disapproval even further. By doing that, the opposition can hope the ruling party might give up the legislation, though considering Mr. Abe’s commitment to it, that seems unlikely.

5 Would Japan Really Become More Secure?

Mr. Abe’s government argues that stronger partnerships with the U.S. and other western powers would make alliances with them more credible, thereby improving their effectiveness as a deterrent to aggression. Critics argue that a closer partnership with the U.S., and more involvement in overseas missions, would increase terror risks in Japan, strain the government finances and leave national defense weaker.
