Global Parameters in the Age of Nuclear Weapons

-From the viewpoint of Human Dignity-

Nuclear power continues to have a profound impact on the international order. 

It is still new to our mind that ICAN was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last September after their works and initiative towards the implementation of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. This is the first legally binding international agreement to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons. However, it still emphasizes an “unalienable right” of the peaceful use of nuclear energy. How do we ensure that countries will stick through with peaceful use? What role do we, as students have in this global initiative? 

It is important to consider that we may become the last generation who could listen to and carry the voices of atomic bomb survivors to the future. As this summer marks the 73rd year after the end of WW2, let us have a chance to reconsider the impacts and issues of this nuclear era.

This symposium is open for everything who has an interest in the current state of international affairs. We look forward to seeing you at the symposium

​The Atomic Bomb Survivor Council Tokyo 

Executive Director

Nobuo Miyake

 Born on Feb 16, 1926, Mr. Miyake experienced the hiroshima atomic bombing when he was just 16 years old. He was exposed to the atomic bomb while riding a train which was approximately 1.8 km from ground zero. Although many of those in the train passed away or experienced serious injuries, Mr. Miyake was able to shield himself from the radiation by jumping off the train. He began his testimonial advocacy initiative in 1980, traveling to a number of different countries including USA, Holland, Canada and Israel, Saudi Arabia. He also served as the executive director of the atomic bomb survivor council.
