March 11, 2012, marks the one-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the Tohoku (northeastern) region of Japan and triggered the world's worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl. The crisis raised national concerns over nuclear power and its impacts on health and the environment, as well as skepticism about information from the government. At the same time, the disaster has inspired grassroots action and responses from the civil society. In this webinar, Daniel Aldrich, Associate Professor of Political Science at Purdue University and an expert on nuclear energy in Japan, will help you:

  • Understand how Japan – the only nation to have experienced atomic weaponry – developed one of the most advanced nuclear power programs in the world
  • Recognize the ways in which public opinion on nuclear power has shifted since the 3/11 compounded disaster
  • Intuit the engines for recovery that will help Japan rebuild after the disaster.

We hope you'll join us!
