Managing Nuclear Crisis: Japan-U.S. Cooperation at Fukushima

October 4, 2012 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


On October 4, 2012, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA co-hosted an event on the Fukushima nuclear crisis with Sasakawa Peace Foundation of Japan and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. This event concluded a project launched by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation in July 2011 to asses the Japanese-U.S. response to theFukushima nuclear crisis. The two leaders of the project, Nobumasa Akiyama and Heigo Sato, presented their findings and were joined by three U.S. government officials who worked on the front lines of the joint response—Ambassador Rust Deming, then director of Japan affairs at the State Department, Richard Love, then at the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, and Carnegie’s James L. Schoff, who also worked at the Defense Department and who moderated the event.
