    International Peace & Security

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Founded in 1910, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Reprocessing produces weapons-usable separated plutonium, and ending it everywhere would significantly enhance global security. However, ending reprocessing in Japan presents a particular challenge. This project seeks to understand the very real confines imposed by Japan's domestic situation and to suggest constructive, politically feasible steps that would, over time, demonstrate the existence of a credible alternative to reprocessing.

Originally tilted towards a mostly academic approach, Pro et Contra has evolved towards a platform for critical thinking on Russia's current challenges. MacArthur funds will support publishing costs and the Internet presence of the journal.
