Prof. Atsuo Kishimoto “Integration of “Safety” and “Security” through risk approach”
-Safety and security have been separately discussed until recently. In the area of safety, risk approach has been adopted in order to answer the question “how safe is safe enough?” The subject of security has expanded its scope beyond military area to variety of areas after the cold war ended. It is called “securitization”. “All hazards” approach has been adopted by many developed countries in response to the 9.11 terrorist attacks in the 2000s. The field of security has just started to tackle with risk approach in order that “all hazards” approach will function well.
