The article  “Peer-to-Peer Science: Responding to Fukushima” , written by director Emanuel Pastreich and research fellow Layne Hartsell, was ranked as one of the most successful articles of Foreign Policy in Focus for 2013. The article come in  at number nine for the year even though it was released only in September of the year. The article argues for a truly global consortium to respond to the Fukushima crisis long-term and was broadly circulated and posted around the world, and in multiple translations.

As such, the article represents well the level of engagement of the Asia Institute and our commitment to a global dialog on contemporary issues.
