Announcing the 2nd Joint Forum on
“Nuclear Renaissance and the US-Japan Alliance: Finding New Markets and Preventing Proliferation”
co-sponsored by the Brookings Institution and the Slavic Research Center at Hokkaido University

A new found interest in nuclear weapons and energy has been sparked by U.S. President Obama’s proposal for a “world free of nuclear weapons.” However, further discussions not only on global nuclear weapons disarmament but also the peaceful use of nuclear energy must be facilitated between the U.S. and Japan.
The joint forum will be featuring Slavic Research Center’s very own Dr. Shoichi Ito, currently a visiting fellow at the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at Brookings, joined by other distinguished experts and professors to discuss the “now” of nuclear policy of the Obama and Hatoyama administration.
