FGC Research Featured in Global Displacement Report

  • 2015年7月21日

    Ana Mosneaga, research associate with the Fukushima Global Communication Programme, wrote a piece on Japan’s protracted displacement after the March 2011 disasters for The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC)’s annual report “Global Estimates 2015: People displaced by disasters”. The Global Estimates report is the established reference for policy-makers on the global scale, scope and nature of disaster-induced displacement and this year it has placed a special focus on protracted displacement.

    Ana Mosneaga’s contribution “Living in limbo four years after the Tohoku Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident disaster” (pp.67-69) provides an overview of the current situation and challenges facing the evacuees from the areas affected by the nuclear accident in Fukushima and by the earthquake and tsunami in Iwate and Miyagi prefectures, where the damage from the tsunami was most severe.
