The Fukushima Nuclear Crisis and the Politics of Uncertainty. "Most Significant Public Health Crisis in Modern World History"

The Fukushima Nuclear Crisis and the Politics of Uncertainty. "Most Significant Public Health Crisis in Modern World History" | Global Politics - Yemen | Scoop.it

The nuclear disaster in Fukushima which followed in the wake of the 3/11 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami has given rise to one of the most significant public health crises in modern world history, with profound implications for how nuclear energy is perceived. This paper analyzes the most dire phase of the Fukushima nuclear crisis, showing how the level of risk was assessed by nuclear experts and state-level actors who worked largely out of view of public scrutiny. In addition to examining how the accident progression in the reactors was addressed and conveyed to the general public, the paper addresses how the exclusionary zones were determined by Japanese and foreign governments in Japan.
