Title:Action at a Distance: How do Ordinary People Self-organize Humanitarian Efforts Remotely and Collaboratively?
Author(s):Takazawa, Aiko
Subject(s):disasters
citizen response
self-organizing groups
qualitative research
Abstract:New forms of citizen participation in disaster response continue to emerge as disasters create the need, and technology creates the opportunity. The rapidly evolving connectivity and technologically mediated environment promise to expand the role of citizens not only participating through organized efforts, but also self-organizing group efforts. Using a case study method, this research aims to describe and explain the dynamic processes of how ordinary people come into being as a group for humanitarian efforts and maintain evolving processes of collaborative activities over time. I am exploring these issues in the context of a small group that emerged online in response to the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami. This poster presents the work-in-progress.
