Transatlantic Perspectives: China’s Nuclear Policy

January 23, 2020 - 09:00-10:30
Medelhavsmuseet. Fredsgatan 2, 11152 Stockholm

No first use, limited capabilities, small arsenal – China’s approach to nuclear deterrence has historically been characterized by restraint. However, recent developments particularly in the Chinese domestic sphere suggest this restraint is undergoing change. Further exacerbating uncertainty, these domestic factors which relate to changes within the People’s Liberation Army, political-bureaucratic power relations, and the organizational structures of the institutions charged with nuclear policy all take place against the backdrop of increasingly volatile regional geopolitics.

What does this notion of tourism as development look like from such ‘destinations’? In this seminar, Rune Bolding Bennike explores this and related questions in a Himalayan valley marked by the looming prospect of future tourism.
