Appeal for international peace

The National Institute for Fusion Science is contributing to the construction of a peaceful and sustainable society by promoting academic research on fusion science in collaboration with the international community.

Unfortunately, in today’s world, unilateral attempts to force a change in the status quo are rampant, and many lives are lost every day. We strongly condemn such violence, and hope that a peaceful solution will be found as soon as possible, and a world will be realized in which academic freedom is not thwarted by autocratic ambitions.

We will unceasingly pay attention to world politics. In the international collaborations and research meetings conducted by the National Institute for Fusion Science, we will continue to support the research activities of individual scientists who share the idea of the sanctity of life and international peace, regardless of their nationality.
