Lessons from Fukushima

Source(s):  Greenpeace International

This report, commissioned by Greenpeace International, addresses the lessons that can be taken away from this catastrophe. It looks into fundamental questions regarding the end of the nuclear safety paradigm and draws some important conclusions. The first chapter documents how Japan found its emergency planning for a nuclear accident not being functional. The second chapter addresses the Japanese legislation on liability and compensation. The third chapter questions political influence on regulation of the nuclear industry. To conclude, the report uses what it qualifies as institutional failures in Japan to warn to rest of the world against nuclear accidents similar to Three Mile Island in the US and the disaster at Chernobyl in Ukraine.
