Koordination: German Institute for Japanese Studies and Japan Risk Management Society
Supported by Social Risk Management Society, Kansai University Faculty of Safety Science


The conference brought together academics and practitioners in the field of risk management and risk communication. The first day allowed younger scholars to present their ongoing research in the field. It has been concluded by the keynote speach of Mr. Sugawara who talked about risk management at Nissan Motors. The morning session of the second day looked at the development of risk management taking the centennial anniversary of Friedrich Leitner’s book as a starting point. The afternoon session considered paradoxa in the way individuals confront and cope with risk. The key note speech was delivered by Prof. Ortwin Renn from University of Stuttgart, author of the German book Das Risikoparadox./p>
