About

2024 Abe Fellows Global Forum, “Beyond Resilience: What Japan Can Teach the World about Disaster”, features Abe Fellows Daniel Aldrich, Northeastern University; Heejun Chang, Portland State University; Anuradha Mukherji, East Carolina University; Jordan Sand, Georgetown University, and moderated by Mary Alice Haddad, Wesleyan University. Panelists will discuss questions such as how do communities, regions and nations recover from extreme hazards; how can local knowledge impact resilience; what can we learn from the experiences of disaster-ridden nations such as Japan; can that knowledge be leveraged in recovery from conflict? The event is a partnership among the East-West Center in Washington, DC, the Social Science Research Council, and the Japan Foundation, New York.
