La catastrophe de Fukushima a dévasté la région de Tohoku, mais elle a aussi touché le reste du monde, conduisant certains pays à geler leurs programmes nucléaires. Les débats japonais permettent d'observer l'émergence d'un monde postindustriel, où même en l'absence de manifestations de masse le poids croissant de l'opinion publique impacte les décisions politiques et les stratégies des acteurs économiques.
The 11 March 2011 triple-disaster of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis in Japan has devastated the Tohoku region but also altered the regulatory and market environment for atomic energy around the world. This article looks at the new situation in Japan for local residents and political elites along with the post-Fukushima changes in energy policies for Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. Japan and the world stand at a crossroads where decision makers and citizens must publicly evaluate the costs and benefits of pursuing nuclear power.
