  3. Research Investigation Report on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident


This is the first-ever analytical report submitted by the privately organized Independent Investigation Commission on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident, a part of the Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation, who has been publicizing new findings and potential causes of the disaster to both domestic and international press.

Based upon interviews from more than 300 people, this book analyzes the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident from a variety of diverse perspectives. The five chapters of this volume include a critical analysis on the causes of the catastrophe, the way the Japanese government handled the incident during and after the tsunami and meltdown took place, why the public was led to believe that nuclear energy safe, and what kind of roles a post-3.11 Japan should play on the world stage in years to come. The report also includes a summary of the Commission’s findings as well as recommended measures that should be taken at other nuclear power facilities to prevent the reoccurrence of another such disaster from ever occurring.
