≪Organizer Abstract≫
This symposium will feature the psychosocial ramifications of nuclear disasters and how they interact with science, technology, and society at-large. The presenters are members of the Phoenix Leader Education Program for Renaissance from Radiation Disaster at Hiroshima University.
The purpose of this thematic session is to inform the congress of the research that these members have conducted in the domain of radiation disaster recovery studies, and emphasize ways to address reconstruction-related problems in the social sphere. Discussions will entail the unique challenges that the consequences of nuclear disaster have created in the form of ambiguous prospects for citizens to return home, the role that communities play in making decisions about stigmatized technology, and the mandate for stakeholders to participate in recovery efforts that effectively manage inequities.
The focus of this session is to facilitate harmony through smart consensus-building and robust coping strategies under the diverse circumstances of Fukushima reconstruction.
