Roundtable on my Recent Post in the Bulletin of the Atomic ScientistsPosted: November 5, 2012
A while ago I was contacted by an editor at the BAS who asked if I would be interested in participating in a roundtable discussion of my recent post here on ACL about the IAEA’s standards for investigation and assessment as applied to Iran. You can see the original post here.
I of course said yes, and fortunately Chris Ford and Andreas Persbo also agreed to contribute to this roundtable discussion. The way it’s arranged is that we will each publish three short essays on a pre-determined schedule, with each tranche of essays coming out around the same time. The first tranche of three essays was just published today here at the BAS site. I encourage readers to go have a look at them. There will be two further sets of essays, in which we will respond to each other’s arguments (thus the roundtable dynamic).
For those interested in following the discussion, the schedule will be the following:
Round Two (no more than 600 words):
Joyner publish November 12; Ford publish November 19; Persbo publish November 26
Round Three (no more than 600 words):
Joyner publish December 3; Ford publish December 10; Persbo publish December 17
