Socio-legal norms in preventing and managing disasters in Japan and the Asia-Pacific

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.
