    Spotlight on Fukushima: Exploring the Legacy and Lessons of the 2011 Nuclear Disaster

    Despite approval by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that the recent release of Fukushima’s wastewater is safe, the decision has reignited debates and concerns surrounding radiation, environmental contamination, and the long-term impact on ecosystems and human health. The aftermath of the 2011 incident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant continues to resonate globally. It is imperative that academic research plays a vital role in fostering international dialogue, facilitating knowledge exchange, and informing policy improvements.

    In this free to access collection, we have handpicked select articles that covers research surrounding the Fukushima disaster, shedding light on diverse aspects of its aftermath. From improvement of tsunami countermeasures to exploring nuclear risk governance from a sociological perspective, this collection offers an examination of the complex dynamics of decision making, governance and societal impacts of the Fukushima disaster.
