TCJS Seminar Series / 東京大学現代日本研究センター セミナーシリーズ | Infectious Diseases Management: A Retrospective Look at Japanese Society before World War II

2021.05.12(Wed) Closing Date 2021.05.11(Tue) 12:00 General Public Facebook Twitter Line

Event Overview

In Japan (as well as in other countries) before World War II, people had been suffered from infectious
diseases – such as the Spanish flu, Tuberculosis (TB), or Dysentery and resulting high risks of losing
their lives, health or money. Japanese companies as well as their stakeholders – such as employees,
consumers and shareholders – had to cope with such risks and a future uncertainty caused by them.
In this seminar, I will investigate how they dealt with such risks and uncertainty, and try to show
that they built mutual trusts and established cooperative relationships to manage such risks and
uncertainty. I will also discuss what are lessons we can learn from history to survive in the era of COVID-19.
