- DescriptionThe triple disaster that struck Japan in March 2011 began with the most powerful earthquake kwn to have hit Japan and led to tsunami up to 40 meters in height that devastated a wide area and caused thousands of deaths. The ensuing accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant was Japan's worst and only second to Cherbyl in its severity. But has this triple disaster also changed Japan? Has it led to a transformation of the country, a shift in how Japan functions? This book, with fresh perspectives on extraordinary events written by diplomats and policy experts at European embassies to Japan, explores subsequent shifts in Japanese politics and policy-making to see if profound changes have occurred or if instead these are limited. The book addresses those policy areas most likely to be affected by the tragedy - politics, ecomics, energy, climate, agriculture and food safety - describes how the sector has been affected and considers what the implications are for the future.
