Raquel Shaoul

But under what circumstances would Japan and China engage in nuclear energy cooperation? Raquel Shaoul acknowledges the potential obstacles, but provides a new energy-economic approach which presents cooperation as a win-win energy equation worth consideration by policymakers in the two countries.
