This website is intended to disseminate, from the A-bombed city of Hiroshima to the world, findings from careful research on compensation systems for nuclear damage. The researchers involved meet with nuclear victims while conducting their studies, as well as collaborate with experts in international law, environmental policy, and medicine, in order to bring global nuclear damage to light.
We hope that those interested in nuclear damage and compensation systems in various parts of the world will read through the information compiled, that those seeking compensation for nuclear damage and their allies will find useful hints and insight, and that those considering how to promote victim assistance and international cooperation as stipulated in the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will make use of this information.
As war raging in Ukraine, we hope this site will remind readers of “the little people,” in the words of Svetlana Alexievich, who have been sacrificed to the development of nuclear weapons.
This website will continue to grow, as we conduct further research and receive information from readers. We look forward to taking this journey together.
