Japan Town Hall Meeting: Looking Ahead to Recovery
The scale and power of Japan's devastating earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear catastrophe are horrific, and the news coming out of Japan is heart-breaking. As the country grapples with the aftermath of the crisis, the world community is exploring what it can best do to help. Inside Japan, questions are only beginning to be asked about what comes next. Please join us for a town hall dialogue with a panel of experts in the United States and Japan to discuss the crisis, the national and international response, and the short and longer-term political, socio-economic and cultural implications for Japan's future.
