Social Processes and Effects of Innovations
in Tokyo and beyond – Workshop of the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies | Wed/Thu, November 7–8, 2018, 13.15 h | Geibelstr. 41, 47057 Duisburg, SG 183
The metropolitan area of Tokyo is still the Japanese seismograph of new social developments in the public sphere, even after nearly two decades of decentralization reforms. Due to the rapid urban and social developments, the metropolitan society offers an ideal forum for social innovations.
With presenters from sociology, political science and cultural studies, the workshop offers various insights of social and urban innovations in the form of new social movements, democratic innovations, and recent urban developments and their effects on the local community.
