East Asia Science & Security – Archives

The East Asia Science and Security Network (EASSNet) delivered timely news and innovative research across a range of issues relating to science and security, including energy security, bio-security, nano-technology, nuclear fuel cycle, missile technology, and information technology, especially within the East Asia region. The network drew on research from Nautilus Institute and its partners in China, Japan, South Korea, Russia, Australia, and North Korea, as well as grantees of the MacArthur Foundation, of MacArthur Foundation, Ploughshares Fund, New Land Foundation, Korea Foundation, Ford Foundation, and US Department of Energy. The service provided researchers, journalists, and policymakers access to and understanding of developments beyond their own disciplinary, academic, or industrial communities.
