NAGADORO: Rural Life after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

4 September 2014, London

Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster of March 2011, Professor Tom Gill (Meiji Gakuin University) has made some 26 field trips to Nagadoro, a tiny hamlet that has absorbed some of the highest levels of radiation in Fukushima prefecture.  During the course of these field trips Prof Gill has got to know the people of Nagadoro as they undergo an agonizing series of trials and tribulations.  In this special public seminar he tells their story and offers a glimpse of what life is really like for the residents of the nuclear disaster zone.  Joining Prof Gill in discussion will be Professor Ian Neary from the University of Oxford.
