Cataclysm in Japan (part 2)

In the face of its worst disaster since World War Two, faced with a major nuclear accident and rolling power outages, François Picard’s panel explains why Japan has shown amazing resilience.

Jean-François Di MEGLIO, President of the Asia Centre, CERI Sciences-Po
Ken MORI, Director, France News Digest
Dr. Nissim OTMAZGIN, Lecturer at the Department of East Asian Studies and Asia Unit Coordinator for The Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (by satellite from Jerusalem)
