This is Part II of the Japan in Crisis presentation and includes a lively discussion with the Harvard University community.

On March 11, 2011 a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off the east coast of Japan, triggering massive tsunami waves that swept inland, decimating whole towns. Although the total number of casualties remains unknown, as many as 10,000 people are feared dead. Meanwhile, the earthquake has also caused damage to several of Japan's nuclear reactors, and authorities continue to struggle to bring that crisis under control.

In this discussion, faculty members, researchers, and guest panelists explored the implications of this catastrophic chain of events and discussed the multi-fold challenges facing Japan as it struggled to respond and recover. Dr. Arnold M. Howitt, Executive Director, Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Harvard Kennedy School, moderated a panel that included: * Professor Michael W. Golay, Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology * Jun Kurihara, Senior Fellow, Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Harvard Kennedy School * Professor Herman B. "Dutch" Leonard, Harvard Kennedy School & Harvard Business School * Professor Shoji Tsuchida, Faculty of Safety Science, Kansai University, Japan
