About this book

This book is a joint endeavour of the three partner universities to develop a book with in-depth and state-of-art analysis for the academic community of East Asia and the world. Past disasters, like the 2008 Great Sichuan Earthquake in China and the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, saw good efforts of East Asian countries in helping each other. Such a trend has been further strengthened in these countries’ recent cooperation and mutual support in their fight against Covid-19 pandemic. While China, Japan, and South Korea are geographically and culturally contiguous and hence may share some characteristics in their risk management principles and practices, there may also be many significant differences due to their different socioeconomic and political systems.  The commonalities and variances in East Asia risk management systems are also reflected by their recent responses to the Covid-19 challenges. While all three countries demonstrated overall success in controlling the epidemic, the measures taken by them were different. This research will be of interest to policymakers, scholars and economists.

Reviews

Risk Management in East Asia presents a path-breaking step toward building a common approach to managing the shared risks that challenge China, Japan, and South Korea. Anchored by education leaders at three universities, the book articulates a view of disaster management as learning to cope with hazards that cross international boundaries. (Louise K. Comfort, Professor, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Pittsburgh)

In early 2020, COVID-19 was just emerging as an unprecedented threat to humanity. Analysis and control of this pandemic and future crises remains a challenge. Based on the educational cooperation among leading universities, Risk Management in East Asia breaks a new path understanding the evolving ideas and realigning practices in China, Japan, and South Korea to confront the shifting natures of risks in the region. (Shigeru Aoyagi, Director, UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education)

Risk management and regional cooperation tend to be overlooked by national governments. This new book provides practical guide and advice on mitigating risks in a post-modern industrialized world where climate change, industrial revolution, geopolitical forces, and pandemics could further exacerbate the human living environment. Indeed, this is a very timely book. (Xiaoyan Liang, Lead Education Specialist, The World Bank)
