Title March 11 Earthquake and Social Enterprise
Abstract How are international students dealing with reconstruction after the March 11 earthquake? Many students may choose to take part in volunteer work; however, there is also the growing Social Enterprise (SE) model in the West. SE’s are project organizations which use market mechanisms to solve social challenges rather than aiming for profit of the organization. The essential problems of the affected area are not the restoration of the town or the banks, but the original problem of a region with an aging population and diminishing industry, and the need for constructing a new industry and new business model for the region. In the seminar, necessary statistical data from the affected area compared to the findings of field work will be shared and a SE case study in Japan and outside Japan as an approach for a plan towards restoration will be discussed.
