A key theme of the Einaudi Center is Sustainability. In 2016 we have elected to focus on a difficult topic: nuclear power, its potential to serve as solution to global climate change, and its risks. To kick off this discussion, we have invited experts who have studied the three major nuclear accidents of our time—Three Mile Island in 1979, Chernobyl in 1986, and Fukushima in 2011—to a Roundtable discussion to share lessons learned in the aftermath of these events. On March 11, 2016, on the fifth anniversary of the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Japan, we invite you to join in this timely and important conversation.
