Japan’s ongoing experiences with radiation from Hiroshima and Nagasaki to Fukushima provide powerful examples of the importance of radiation governance. The tenth anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear reactor failure calls for reflection on past and future radiation governance, recognized as a transnational, transdisciplinary, and transgenerational challenge and responsibility to effectively share knowledge and expertise in policy formation and practice.
Envisioning Next Generation Radiation Governance is an 5 session, open, virtual symposium that will be held in March, 2021. Our goal is to bring together people across diverse areas of expertise to foreground diverse approaches to radiation governance stemming from diverse histories. Each panel will be a moderated discussion among differently-situated experts, with time for questions from the audience.
