1. Kazuto Misumi, The Significance of Comparative Analysis of ‘Crossroad’ , Bulletin of the Graduate School of Integrated Sciences for Global Society, Kyushu University (地球社会統合科学), 27, 2, 16-21, 2021.03, In this article we discuss the practical significance of sociology for Crossroad as the disaster prevention tool and the academic significance of Crossroad in sociology, from three perspectives. The first one is comparative analysis of Crossroad questions. We introduce five classification axes, and discuss the importance of especially two axes, dilemma type and theoretical framework, to extract sociological meaning from Crossroad questions as the disaster case data. The second one is comparative analysis by setting theoretical reference point questions. In this case we introduce two reference point questions: one is based on N person prisoner’s dilemma, and the other is based on social capital theory in regard with solving dilemmas. We illustrate comparative analysis of two questions of Crossroad Kumamoto with these reference point questions and show how to extract sociological implications from them. The third one is comparative analysis of reactions of Crossroad players. By taking a question on distribution of insufficient supplies in a shelter, we consider theoretical meaning of the response difference when an additional condition of counting the number of evacuees in advance is introduced..

3. Kazuto Misumi, Functioning of Free Rider for Community Resilience: A Social Capital Theory of Disaster, Bulletin of the Graduate School of Integrated Sciences for Global Society, Kyushu University (地球社会統合科学), 25, 1, 1-9, 2019.01, Based on field research on Kumamoto earthquake disaster, in this paper we focus on sociological problems around management of evacuation shelters. The key concept is social capital that captures dynamism of the social structure as the basic sociological scope for disaster. At first, by focusing on conditions for autonomous (successful in a sense) shelter management, we find four social capital elements and discuss importance of their combined effects to strengthen community resilience. The elements include volunteer among victims who are ordinary free riding on community management. Why free riders cooperate in emergency, in other words, why ‘disaster community’ appears? We answer this question in terms of two mechanisms within rational choice framework. At first, there is the overt urgent demand for solidarity at the time of disaster, which motivates everyday free riders to become volunteers. Secondly, standing on the view of divided supply of public goods, most free riders are ‘quasi-free riders’ whose levels of threshold for cooperation are relatively low. Thus, the free rider can be incorporated into the mechanism of social capital that strengthens community resilience against disaster..

, The Journal of Culture Contents (Research Institute of the Creative Contents), 8, 95-114, 2016.12, 信頼にフリーラーダーを促進する側面があることを、合理的選択理論の枠組みで論理的に示し、その実際のあり方を「関東甲信越健康調査」データの分析によって実証的に論じた。その上で、信頼が促進するフリーライダーが地域マネジメントにおいてもつ積極的な意味をもちうることを主張した。なお、ここで信頼は、アスレイナーによる信頼の道徳的基礎の議論をふまえて独自に導入した地域社会信頼である。.
