MEMORY OF NUCLEAR ENERGY IN BRAZIL

This project offers a collection of oral histories pertaining to the Brazilian nuclear program from inception to present day. We have interviewed key scientists, diplomats and military personnel who took part in the various efforts since the 1950s to develop indigenous nuclear technology.

This project is funded by Financiadora de Estudos e Projetos, Brazil.

 

THE CHALLENGE TO TRUST BUILDING IN NUCLEAR WORLDS

This project is coordinated by Professor Nicholas J. Wheeler, from the Department of International Politics of the University of Aberystwyth (United Kingdom) and the chapter dedicated to the analysis of the case of nuclear rivalry between Brazil and Argentina is managed in partnership with the Center for International Relations at FGV.

This project has 2 main analytical objectives. First, to apply insights from theories and practices of trust developed in the wider Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities to International Relations/security studies. Second, to establish trust as a core concept in International Relations/security studies.

The Center collaborates with the main project team in Aberystwyth in the development of the Brazil-Argentina case as an example of trust-building. He hope our efforts will lead us to better understand lessons concerning the building of trust, which have the potential of contributing to the development of new political approaches in the nuclear area.

To produce new sources of primary research concerning this subject, the research group will work on a critical oral history: a research technique which collects oral history testimonies with more than one deponent at a time.

NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION INTERNATIONAL HISTORY

Nuclear Non-Proliferation International History is a three-year research effort on the international history of nuclear proliferation, non-proliferation, and counter-proliferation based on evidence from oral history interviews, critical oral history conferences and archives around the world.

FGV is part of the international network of historians, political scientists, and other experts who will jointly reassess the history of nuclear weapons proliferation and non-proliferation through a comparative international history approach and through their findings actively inform the public policy debate on these issues.

Funding for this initiative is provided by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
