CALL FOR SHARING (up to August 31, 2018)
The symposium aims at sharing with the public the state of knowledge on contemporary issues related to The Rise of Asia, i.e. the nuclear issue. The public consists of scholars and students interested in Asia. The symposium invites experts, researchers, public officers, activists of social and solidarity movements, to share their view without formal paper. The symposium is organised in a form of panel discussions where speakers present their view in informal way. Those willing to share their view are invited to send the summary of their view in maximum 300 words accompanied by a short biography to firstname.lastname@example.org until August 31, 2018. The Organising Committee will provide the selected speakers with a round trip train ticket Paris-Le Havre and meals during the symposium.
INTRODUCTION TO THE TOPIC
The most powerful Western countries (USA, UK, France) have been the Master of Nuclear Technology, either for constructive or destructive purposes. Later on, some Non-Western countries joined the Master (Russia, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran, Israel). The late comers in Nuclear Technology among the countries that are not aligned to Western Countries created tension in global politic. Why? What role of Nuclear Technology in the Rise of Asia? Is it to balance and deter the potential adversary? Is it to meet the increasing need for energy? What are their ecological, economic and social impacts in Asia and worldwide?
