All of our projects listed alphabetically.
Modeling the energy sectors of countries in North-East Asia to promote schemes for regional cooperation and examine the impacts of different strategies to address energy insecurity.
This project seeks to supplement the International Commission on Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament with parallel work at the civil society level, which at least in the area of strategic relations, has been less developed than in other sectors.
The symposium will identify the key dynamics of the strategic relationship, identify next steps in two important areas of shared interest (extended nuclear deterrence and nuclear disarmament), analyze the origins and consequences of non-security issues disruptive to the relationship and develop means of containing them, and strengthen the civil society underpinnings of the developing bilateral security community in the post-Fukushima era.
A collaboration between South Korean and Japanese civil society organizations to examine nuclear proliferation in North-East Asia.
Reframing Australia-Indonesia security is a Nautilus project in collaboration with Indonesian partner organisations through shared work on global problems: in particular climate change and energy insecurity. This includes the influence of climate change concerns on nuclear energy planning in the two countries, and the possible misperceptions deriving from both current nuclear planning and past nuclear proliferation attempts.
Materials relating to the Melbourne and Seoul workshops on climate change impacts and adaptation in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Australia in November 2008 and March 2009.
Training technical personnel in the DPRK on energy efficiency measures and funding the partial energy efficiency upgrade of a building in the DPRK.
Convening experts on the DPRK energy sector to develop a realistic assessment of the DPRK energy sector and energy aid and engagement options to support efforts to denuclearize the DPRK.
A network of scholars, policy-makers, and security experts from across the Asia-Pacific region who discuss security issues such as climate change, nuclear spent fuel, export controls, tracking nuclear proliferation, and other issues.
Through publication of hard-to-get information, the Nautilus Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) project aspires to increase government accountability and inform the public on high-level government planning, particularly on issues of Nuclear policy.
The project brings together experts from Japan, the ROK, and PRC to explore the interconnected relationship between non-traditional security issues such as urban insecurity, climate change and energy security and analyze the difference in policy responses to these issues in each country.
For the past two years Nautilus has worked to establish a nuclear weapon free zone in Northeast Asia.
This project explores ways to strengthen national implementation of the April 2004 UNSC Resolution 1540 obligations to prevent the spread of WMD to non-state actors.
The Security of Spent Nuclear Fuel project draws on a network of experts on nuclear safety and security in East Asia and the United States. Between 2012 and 2014 country teams from China, Japan, and South Korea will examine how alternative spent fuel storage locations, management strategies, and storage technologies—including deep borehole disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level wastes—can minimize the risk of radioactive releases caused by nuclear terrorism or by accidents.
In 2010, Nautilus Institute at RMIT was funded by the Australia-Korea Foundation to organize a series of events on strategic futures and strengthened civil society policy relations.
