Reflecting in Hiroshima, Japan on the anniversary of the bombing on August 6

Aug. 4, 2023

As part of the multi-year Princeton–University of Tokyo Strategic Partnership Project, “Policing, Public Space, and Democracy,” faculty members from the Center for Transnational Policing, Princeton Urban Imagination Center, and the Effron Center for the Study of America at Princeton University (Laurence Ralph, Aisha Beliso-De Jesús, and Marshall Brown) and selected Princeton undergraduate and graduate students are traveling in Japan. They have presented their projects on topics of policing and security, and have been exploring forms of policing, security, and surveillance in Japan. The group has also traveled to Hiroshima to view a data visualization exhibit organized by the University of Tokyo faculty and students, and to explore issues of security and peacebuilding as the city prepares for the anniversary of the atomic bombing on August 6. After visiting the Peace Memoriam Museum on August 3, the group listened to an atomic bomb survivor, Ms. Teruko Yahata, on August 4. The group was interviewed after the talk, which was reported as a news segment on Hiroshima Television.
