Six years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, Tsunami, and the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, while regional reconstruction is progressing gradually, there are still people who are suffering, many of whom have not been able to return from evacuation while trying to reconstruct their lives.

A research group from Fukushima University has studied the damage caused by this disaster, as well as the evacuation of the victims, and the influence this has had on the local community. 

Join us for a timely discussion with these professors about the progress and problems of the past six years, and what we can learn from those on the frontlines of community recovery. 

The members of the research group are as follows: 

Fuminori Tamba (Associate Professor, Fukushima University) · · · Planning the reconstruction of municipalities in nuclear disaster

Kazuhiko Amano (Associate Professor, Fukushima University) · · · Evacuation and community reconstruction in nuclear disaster
