 Recently theories of justice progressed remarkably through responding to challenges by social movements such as feminism, multiculturalism or cultural studies. Yet events like the catastrophe recently experienced in Fukushima, Japan raise questions for theories of justice. For example: can we continue to base our reactions on such notions as freedom, rights, equity, reciprocity and human security― all of which are pivotal to social justice― in catastrophic situations? Catastrophe, as it is understood here is not restricted to the type of evident calamity such as natural disasters, war or economic collapse. If we loosely define the concept of catastrophe as an experience which happens both accidentally and inevitably, or which brutally disrupts between the relation between ordinary and the non-ordinary, then there may have been many events which we should have recognized as catastrophes, but failed to. The purpose of this conference is to reexamine the modern theories of justice, their limit and possibilities in a broader angle in relation to the issue of catastrophe.
