The nuclear profiles of countries in East Asia are diverse. There are countries in East Asian countries with up-to-date nuclear technology, a country with a strong desire for nuclear weapons, and a country keeping up their nuclear technology against another country’s possession of nuclear weapons. East Asian countries have kept focusing on nuclear technology for their own security and economic development. North Korea has asserted their nuclear development program is for national security, and they cannot give up the technology. Northeast Asia without a multilateral security system must now seriously take proper steps for nuclear non-proliferation. This session will mainly discuss the non-proliferation issue.
- Is East Asia without nuclear weapons possible? How can it be achieved?
- Is nuclear weapon free East Asia Possible?
- Are the Six-Party Talks still useful? What are the other options?
- What does the recent nuclear situation in Japan imply for the future of nuclear energy?

동아시아에서 핵 상황은 다양합니다. 최고의 핵무기 기술을 가진 나라와 악착같이 핵무기를 가지려고 하는 나라, 핵무기 보유에 대비하여 고도의 핵기술을 유지하려는 나라 등이 공존하고 있습니다. 자국의 안보와 경제발전을 이유로 핵개발 기술에 대한 관심은 식지 않고 있습니다. 북한은 자주와 안보를 위해 핵무기를 개발하였다고 주장 하였으며 이를 끝까지 포기하지 않겠다고 선언하고 있습니다. 다자 안보체제가 없는 동북아시아에서 핵의 평화적 이용을 통한 핵확산 방지를 위한 방안을 심각히 강구해야 할 때가 왔습니다. 이에 대한
전문가들의 견해를 듣습니다.
- ‘핵없는 동아시아’는 가능한가? 그 대안은?
- 북한 핵의 검증가능한 해체는 가능한가?
- 6자 회담은 아직도 유용한가? 다른 대안은 있는가?
- 그리고 일본 후쿠시마 원전 사태는 원자력의 미래에 어떤 함의를 주는가?
