The Socialist Democratic Federation (社会民主連合 Shakai-minshu-rengō?) (SDF), also referred to in Japanese by the shortened Shaminren (社民連?), was a Japanese political party that existed from 1978 to 1994. It was formed from the merger of the Socialist Citizen's Federation (社会市民連合 Shakai-shimin-rengō?) and the Shakai Club (社会クラブ Shakai-kurabu?).
