[Paris joint]A French scholar who was investigating the social impact of the TEPCO Fukushima nuclear accident at a public institution in France was dismissed last year, and 16 researchers from both France and Japan were sent to the French newspaper Le Monde on the 6th. He contributed and accused him of oppressing research freedom.

According to Lemond, social anthropologist Christine Fasère was hired by the French Institute for Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) in 2012, and was socially and politically involved in the 2011 nuclear accident with Sciences Po and Tokyo Institute of Technology. We conducted joint research to explore the impact. However, he was dismissed in June last year for reasons such as “disobedience to his boss.”
