Governing Complex Energy Systems: Challenges and Strategies for Japan and the UK

last modified May 12, 2015 11:49 AM

Dr John Swenson-Wright, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Politics and International Relations and Head of the Asia Programme at Chatham House organised this event at Chatham House. Among the participants was Dr Barak Kushner, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese History.

The event considered lessons from governance failure following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan, highlighting the role of popular opinion and interest groups in the debate, and discussing the nature of government decision-making in the country. The event also considered issues of energy and democracy, both in the UK and Japan, to establish whether public needs can be reflected within current governance structures, and what the alternatives might be.
