Analyse des personnalités nord-coréennes présentes aux festivités des 70 ans du Parti du Travail Coréen. N’ayant pas fait parti des convives du 70ème anniversaire de la formation du Parti du Travail Coréen (le Parti Communiste nord-coréen), j’ai du me contenter de regarder les 2 heures 171 minutes des festivités via la télévision russe.

Analyse des personnalités nord-coréennes présentes aux festivités des 70 ans du Parti du Travail Coréen

En ce 10 octobre 2015, Le temps était radieux à Pyongyang. De nombreuses délégations étrangères qui ont du financer partiellement leur séjour en Corée du Nord ont du être surprises par l’aspect symbolique des cérémonies. Cependant en observant l’événement, l’observateur avertit a put noter la présence de revenants du Parti du Travail Coréen (le Parti Communiste nord-coréen) et de l’Armée Populaire de Corée. Par souci de clarté, definissons le concept de revenant. De manière régulière, les médias (y compris moi-même) nous informent de la « disparition » d’élites nord-coréennes. Les festivités du 70ème anniversaire du PTC ont donc été un moment important pour déterminer les retours éventuels de certaines élites. Photographies et commentaires Sur le même thème.

Maritime Security in Southeast Asia: U.S., Japanese, Regional, and Industry Strategies

Simon and Neil Quartaro Pirate activity in strategically important waterways around the globe, from the Strait of Malacca to the waters off the Horn of Africa, has garnered significant attention recently from states dependent on these waters for international trade and the free movement of goods. State responses have ranged from independently dispatching naval forces to patrol major sea lines of communication, to multinational patrols and information sharing mechanisms to increase domain awareness. Less visible, but of equal—or perhaps greater—importance are the efforts of ship owners, operators, and maritime industry groups toward increasing ship security and combating pirate attacks. 1: U.S. 2: Japan’s Role in Strengthening Maritime Security in Southeast Asia James Manicom 3: Safety and Security in the Malacca Straits: The Limits of Collaboration Sheldon W. 4: The Challenges of the Jolly Roger: Industry Perspectives on Piracy Neil A.

Levi McLaughlin, "Komeito’s Soka Gakkai Protesters and Supporters: Religious Motivations for Political Activism in Contemporary Japan", The Asia-Pacific Journal, Vol. 13, Issue. 40, No. 1, October 12, 2015. Recently, adherents of the lay religious organization Soka Gakkai have taken to the streets and the Internet to rebuke Komeito, the junior member of the ruling government coalition and the party founded by Soka Gakkai, for abandoning peace advocacy.

Levi McLaughlin, "Komeito’s Soka Gakkai Protesters and Supporters: Religious Motivations for Political Activism in Contemporary Japan", The Asia-Pacific Journal, Vol. 13, Issue. 40, No. 1, October 12, 2015

This article places the recent protests in historical and doctrinal context as it introduces perspectives from within Soka Gakkai to complicate easy assumptions about adherents’ ideology, and it suggests ways to determine how Soka Gakkai political activism may take shape in the near future. Eiichiro Ochiai, "The Human Consequences of the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant Accidents", The Asia-Pacific Journal, Vol. 13, Issue. 38, No. 2, September 28, 2015.

When a very strong earthquake (magnitude 9.0) hit the Pacific ocean side of the northeastern part of the main island of Japan on March 11th (3.11) 2011, the accompanying huge tsunami wiped out many communities along the coast.

Close to 20,000 people lost their lives, mainly due to the tsunami. Many who were stripped of their homes and livelihood continue to struggle to recover their ways of life. One of the most disastrous results of the quake/tsunami was the devastation at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (Fk-1) of the Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

The plant is known in Japan as Fk-1 (Fuku-ichi). It released an enormous amount of radioactive material. This article discusses some prominent features of the current situation (as of August 2015) in the aftermath of the Fk-1 accident. The Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Accident Units 1~3 were operating at the time, but shut down automatically when the quake hit.
