Tests in the Desert? Towards a Comparative and Transnational History of Nuclear Test Sites

Mittwoch, 19.01.2022 bis Freitag, 21.01.2022

International Conference, Paris

The conference aims to provide a platform to enable the drawing up of a typology of sites and their periodisation, concerning as many facilities as possible where nuclear tests have either been carried out or were planned. The facilities of so-called “threshold states” (Sweden, Iran), others whose equipment has remained clandestine or secret (South Africa, Israel, North Korea), and lastly the situation of Powers planning such a facility (Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt) all come within the scope of the conference.
