Asia Institute releases white paper on the Fukushima crisis

“Open-Source Reasoning and Open Mindedness as a Strategy for Responding to the Fukushima Crisis”
White Paper of the Asia Institute
June 7, 2014

Introduction

This paper is an expansion of some of the central ideas that were articulated by Emanuel Pastreich and Layne Hartsell in an article published in Foreign Policy in Focus in September, 2013 concerning the response to the meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The article, titled “The Century-Long Challenge to Respond to Fukushima,”called for an international collaborative response to the ecological, social and economic crisis left to the world after the disaster of March, 2011.

The article briefly outlined the potential role of wide scale collaboration across the globe between stakeholders and Institutions (public and private) across diverse disciplines to formulate and implement solutions to this on-going Fukushima nuclear disaster, radiation leakage from which has found its way into the food chain and even into products that sourced from Japan.
