After the Great East Japan Earthquake: Political and Policy Change in Post-Fukushima Japan
- About the Book
The triple disaster that struck Japan in March 2011 began with a powerful earthquake and led to a tsunami that devastated a wide area and caused thousands of deaths. The ensuing accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant was Japan’s worst and only second to Chernobyl in its severity.
But has this triple disaster changed Japan? This book, with fresh perspectives on extraordinary events written by diplomats and policy experts at European embassies to Japan, explores the effects on key domestic policy areas—politics, economics, energy, climate, agriculture and food safety—describing how the sector has been affected and considers what the implications are for the future.
