Australia-Japan Society of NSW
The University of Sydney, Sydney Law School, has offered AJS-NSW members the opportunity to attend the above 2-day conference, at a discounted price.
This conference compares the preparedness for large-scale disasters and subsequent responses in Japan, focusing on the '3-11' events: the earthquake and tsunami that devastated north-east Japan on 11 March 2011 and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant radiation leaks.
We will explore whether and how socio-legal norms may have differed significantly within Japan regarding the former, primarily a natural disaster; compared to the latter, a 'man-made' or artificial disaster.
Over two days there will be a number of presentations and discussions from eminent experts from a number of countries and perspectives.
Members can find out more, register and pay at the Sydney Law School site here. To access the discount sign up as a AJS-NSW member.
The Australia-Japan Society of NSW Incorporated (AJS-NSW) aims to bring together Australian and Japanese people living in NSW to explore mutual interests.
AJS-NSW holds regular business, social and cultural functions, and publishes a quarterly newsletter, Tomodachi.
