What Japan must do now

On March 13, 2012, in Faculty, Faculty Articles, Hornung, by APCSS Editor

Japan has made extraordinary progress in recovering from last year’s earthquake and tsunami. But will political bickering stop progress in its tracks?  That’s the subject of a new article “What Japan Must Do Now” by APCSS’ Dr. Jeffery Hornung published by The Diplomat.

According to Hornung, “Despite the enormity of the disaster, Japan has made a remarkable recovery over the past year. Still, ongoing problems with Fukushima and debris removal limit the pace of reconstruction. Japanese officials are still debating the lessons learned from this disaster to allow them to be better prepared in future. The fact is that implementation of these lessons learned, as well as the speed of recovery, has potentially reached a limit until some important political decisions are made.”
