The 2013 STEPI international symposium on Resilience & Risk Management

The conference was organized because Korea is facing tremendous challenges ahead. Korea has achieved remarkable economic growth since 1970s, exploiting technology paradigm shift. However, that context is changed and the challenges are totally new.  

The 120 symposium participants were government officials, policy makers, policy institutes researchers.  Leena Ilmola from ASA gave a presentation titled

“Three layers ofresilience; national, regional and organization level”. 

Discussion was vivid and especially three futures issues were elaborated; structure of the population 2030 (Korea’s fertility rate is only 1,3),  nuclear energy and its risks (40 new nuclear power plants are under construction in the neighbor countries) and technology related risks.
