WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Sigur Center for Asian Studies at George Washington University aims to increase the quality and broaden the scope of research on Asian affairs, and provide a major center for policy discussion. "The Nuclear Debate in Asia: Balancing Risks and Rewards" project will track and analyze internal discussion and debate in China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. It will present its analysis to U.S. government officials, media, scholars, policy communities, and the public, with the aims of facilitating more nuanced U.S. foreign policy. Funds will be used for salaries, travel, publications, and multimedia expenses.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs $400,000 between 2010 and 2013.
