About the course 'Case Study Fukushima'

On May 11th, 2011 an earthquake caused a tsunami that hit the Fukushima nuclear power plant. This eventually led to a nuclear meltdown and release of radioactive material. This disaster is an example of a non-intentional threat (safety) to vital interests in modern society.

By following the logic of interdisciplinary thinking, students will learn how to understand and explain the Fukushima disaster in terms of causes, effects and implications for organisations (public and private), citizens and the natural environment.

Students will explore the Fukushima case by applying knowledge and methods from relevant academic disciplines. They will learn to review an event, or set of events, through the lenses of various academic perspectives and gain the ability to apply this skill to other cases in the domain of security and safety.
