“Nuclear Debates in Asia” – supported by the MacArthur Foundation – tracks the domestic debates and discussion on nuclear power and nonproliferation in eight countries in Asia: China, India, Japan, Pakistan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. This particular mix draws insights from countries at varying stages of nuclear power planning and acquisition. The findings from this project will enhance the capacity of policymakers in the United States to not only understand the interactive nature of Asian domestic opinion on nuclear issues, but also help to evolve policy that will contribute to strengthening nuclear and strategic stability in the Asia-Pacific. The project will make use of the “schools of thought” framework developed through the recently completed “Worldviews of Aspiring Powers” project. An edited volume tentatively titled The Nuclear Debate in Asia: Balancing Risks and Rewards is planned for release in 2014.
