Publication Type: Paper Abstract
Abstract: The nuclear accident at Fukushima-1 Nuclear Plant on March 11, 2011 appears to have raised serious doubts over the overall desirability of nuclear power as a dependable source of energy. Even in Japan, however, support for nuclear power dies hard. This paper examines some pro-nuclear arguments by Japanese nuclear scientists, engineers, and other experts, and analyzes them from the viewpoint of science studies. STS scholars are familiar with situations in which a single experimental result does not refute a theory. Similarly, one accident does not necessarily terminate a technological system and/or the political system that supports it. By closely studying arguments for nuclear energy advocated by several conspicuous scholars and intellectuals, this paper aims to shed light on what kind of empirical, logical, and rhetorical resources are mobilized to deal with the Fukushima-1 nuclear disaster, an evident setback to nuclear power, and what socio-cultural and institutional environments exist to give an appearance of validity to these arguments. In particular, this paper focuses on those who seem to have a genuine belief in the benefits of nuclear energy, rather than those motivated by exterior interests, political or financial. I argue that personal and professional experiences as well as socio-cultural environments shaped their belief in nuclear power, a belief robust enough to withstand the impact of the nuclear disaster. This talk reports a part of results of research collaboration led by Sulfikar Amir (Nanyan Technological University) for a comparative study of the Fukushima-1 nuclear disaster's epistemic impacts on technoscientific regime of nuclear power.

Abstract: What is the relationship between nuclear force posture and deterrence success? Scholars have long debated whether a minimum deterrent is sufficient to deter potential challengers, or whether nuclear superiority over potential rivals provides a more effective nuclear deterrent. Scholars have not, however, articulated a clear logic linking superiority to improved deterrence outcomes, nor have they systematically analyzed these arguments against the entire universe of empirical cases. Using a new dataset on nuclear force posture, which includes information on nuclear arsenal size and delivery vehicles, this paper analyzes the determinants of militarized challenges. We first describe a simple logic grounded in nuclear brinkmanship theory, which links nuclear superiority to deterrence outcomes. We then show that states that enjoy nuclear superiority over their opponents are less likely to be the targets of militarized challenges. Arguments that contend that a minimum deterrent posture is sufficient to deter militarized challenges do not find support in the data. These findings hold even after controlling for conventional military capabilities. This paper presents the first comprehensive empirical examination of the relationship between nuclear force posture and nuclear deterrence.
