International Symposium

Natural Disasters and Human Mobilities: Research on Non-traditional Security in East Asia

Program Overview

Many security issues of today have transnational or supranational dimensions, and the existing security management frameworks are challenged by non-traditional security concerns, especially those related to protection of human rights, humanitarian assistance and social integration. This symposium will examine non-traditional security challenges in East Asia and possible frameworks for addressing them. The symposium will consist of a keynote lecture by Professor Katsuma Yasushi, the dean of the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies of Waseda University and two panel sessions entitled “East Asian Migrations: Exploring New Concepts, Indices, Trends and Theories in an Emerging Field” and “Natural Disaster and International Cooperation.”

This symposium will be held as a part of the EAUI Program, a joint education program run by Korea University, Nanyang Technological University, Thammasat University, Korea University, Peking University and Waseda University. The EAUI Program aims to cultivate the next generation of leaders, scholars and professionals armed with a high level of expertise and deep understanding of the diversity in East Asia.
