Gender and Disaster Research and Policy Forum
Side-event ISA World Congress of Sociology
Science Council of Japan, Tokyo, Japan
July 20, 2014

A Japan-focused side event will be held on July 20, 2014 at 9:00-5:00, building on the ISA World Congress of Sociology session What a Gender Lens Brings to Disaster Studies: Case Studies from Japan and Beyond, organized by the ISA Research Committee on the Sociology of Disaster.

The event is supported by the Science Council Japan (Committee on Supporting Reconstruction after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Sub-Committee on the Promotion of Industry and Employment), and the Economic Policy Institute for Quality Life (EPI).

A morning session in English will bring international and Japanese gender and disaster researchers together for informal exchange. In the afternoon, a forum with translation to English will be held on Mainstreaming Gender in the Science of Disaster Risk Reduction in Japan. This will highlight the impacts of applying a gender lens in disaster risk reduction and recovery and help identify related areas where gender issues can be incorporated.

The event is free and open, however advance registration is requested at your earliest. Elaine Enarson (enarsone@gmail.com; or Keiko Ikeda (ekikeda@ipc.shizuoka.ac.jp.
Venue: Science Council of Japan, 7-22-34 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan
