Abstract

The thesis is about the history associated with the 3.11 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, and explains how all the historical factors connect to the catastrophe. It argues that the Fukushima crisis was not simply caused by the natural disaster; but it was derived from the utility’s heavy path-dependence, not only on the historical factors external to TEPCO, but also on the utility’s internal dynamics.
