CISSM Forum | "Responding to Nuclear Disasters: In Pursuit of 'High Flexibility Organizations'?" | Sonja D. Schmid

The nuclear disaster at Fukushima has led to calls for better emergency preparedness in the commercial nuclear sector. Based on organizational theories of disaster, this talk explores possibilities and challenges for a more effective nuclear emergency response, both on the national and the international level. By comparing and contrasting organizational responses to Fukushima in the United States and the European Union nuclear industries, an increasing tension becomes apparent between approaches that emphasize standardization, regulation, and routine on the one hand, and transparency, reflexivity, and improvisation on the other. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 17, 2013
