Worldviews of Aspiring Powers- Phase 2 (2011-2013)

Phase 2 of this project aims to apply the framework developed from Phase 1 by exposing the domestic debates in rising powers to a Washington audience. The second phase adds a component on energy, maritime security and nuclear power that examines how schools of thought react to these issues.  When concluded, the project will bring domestic perspectives on energy and maritime security together with differing views on nuclear power and nonproliferation in China, India, Japan, and South Korea for the first time. This research will produce fortnightly Policy Alerts and an edited book volume entitled, The Asian Energy Security Complex:  Maritime Security, Nuclear Energy and Nonproliferation and U.S. Policy Implications  along with numerous publications and four major conferences and policy briefings.
