The Bhopal tragedy 25 (10+15) years after. Almost 25 years have passed after the world’s worst industrial accident: methylisocyanate gas leaked from a pesticide plant owned by the US company, Union Carbide (UC), into a densely populated area of Bhopal, in central India killing than 10000 people, and making hundreds of thousands disabled. After the recent and very mild sentence against Union Carbide against 7 administrator of UC (2 years of jail and a fine of little more than 2000 euros), a contribution published 10 years after the tragedy, that documented the efforts done and problems encountered in assessing responsibilities and setting up networks able to permanently document deaths, disabilities and suffering of people involved.
