Upon receiving the award, Professor SUZUKI Kazuto, Senior Research Fellow at API (Professor, Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Tokyo) and Chair of the 10-year Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Nuclear Accident, stated:
“In Japan, we conduct rigid scrutiny before launching a policy or business, but they are rarely reviewed. For the Fukushima nuclear accident, multiple reviews including private ones were conducted. We are very pleased to be recognized for our work in reviewing the review.”
As a private and independent think tank, API is committed to contributing to building a free, open, and sustainable future through intellectual dialogue, policy research, and cultural exchange with a diverse world.
