Abstract :

Risk  is  not  only  real,  but  also  constructed  by  social  institutions  and  various actors.  Knowledge  has  important  role  in  constructing  risk,  especially  in industrial and technological disasters. Unlike in natural disaster, in industrial and  technological  disaster,  there  must  be  a  responsible  party  for  occurring disaster.  Therefore, the  construction  of  the  risk  is  not  only  influenced  by  the real risk it self, but also economic interest of the responsible parties like  Chisso Corporation  in  Minamata  disease  disaster  and  Tokyo  Electric  Power Company (TEPCO) in the context of Fukushima Nuclear disaster.  This article analyzes contestation of knowledge in construction of the risk in the Minamata disease  disaster  and  Fukushima  Nuclear  Disaster  in  Japan.  In  addition,  this article explains the involving actors and the strategies taken to construct risk in both disasters.
