ATOMS FOR PEACE, International Journal

Editor in Chief
Dr Carlo De Masi


Honorary Editor
Professor Emeritus André Maïsseu

The objectives of the journal are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of nuclear energy in society. It serves as an international forum for exchange of ideas and views on the global implications of nuclear technology for economic growth, sustainable development and international security. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of energy and water resources. The international dimension is emphasized in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of international security

Atoms for Peace will:

  • Bring about the emergence of a new voice in the political discourse over the peaceful use of nuclear energy
  • Create an ongoing dialogue between decision makers and the practitioner-stakeholders in nuclear energy, including representatives from industry and military, as well as various other international constituencies;
  • Delineate between those military uses of nuclear necessary for national defense and international security and those which could be detrimental for global stability;
  • Provide a substantive, politically viable and technically feasible draft framework around which future debate can take place;
  • Raise the nuclear issue to a position of prominence within the agendas of world leaders;
  • Facilitate the process of reaching a new global agreement on nuclear security.

Professionals, academics, researchers, policy-makers and managers, trade unionists

The journal will publish high quality papers from a wide variety of disciplinary orientations on the general subject of peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The journal style and dialogue will be inclusive and attempt to involve all those who are interested in issues of atoms for peace (government agencies, national and international, industry, academics, non governmental organizations)
