In risk analysis, a variety of risk issues are analyzed. All kinds of risk analysis research is performed in each of the represented nations, but they all have their own specialty, namely natural disaster research in China, toxicology in Korea, public health in Taiwan, and chemical risk evaluation of and risk communication with the general public in Japan.
