About this issue

One year after the reactor meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, this volume of RCC Perspectives takes stock of its impact and possible legacy in Europe as part of the Rachel Carson Center’s research focus on natural disasters and cultures of risk. While Europe may have been spared radioactive fallout, political and cultural fallout has been significant. Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of the nuclear era? Or beginning of a new one, glimpsed in the shade of authoritarian regimes?
