on Friday, 19 March 2021, 09:00 – 17:00 (CET) / 17:00 – 01:00 (JST)

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and the subsequent catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in 2011, the conference focuses on the long-term effects of the triple disaster on Japanese politics and society. The one-day online conference offers three panels, which are devoted to change and continuity in energy policy (1), life in the Tōhoku areas hit hardest by the triple disaster (2), and interactions between civil society and the state (3).

The Japanese-German Center Berlin (Japanisch-Deutsches Zentrum Berlin JDZB) and the German Association for Social Science Research on Japan (Veinigung für sozialwissenschaftliche Japanforschung VSJF), in cooperation with the German Institute for Japanese Studies (Deutsches Institut für Japanforschung DIJ) and supported by Fritz Thyssen Stiftung and Universität Zürich, are inviting to this conference that will be held in English.
