Debategraph: How to respond to Iran’s nuclear ambitions?
Friday 25 September 2009
With the news breaking today that Iran has informed the IAEA that a new pilot fuel enrichment plant is under construction and
President Obama warning that the plant represents a direct challenge to international non-proliferation and “deepens a growing concern that Iran is refusing to live up to these international responsibilities,” how should the international community respond?
We would like you help us identify, explore and weigh the different options using the interactive debate map above.
As before, the whole structure of the map is like a wiki – every aspect is provisional, and open to further iterative improvement – and everyone can add new points and comments to the map.
The aim with interactive collaborative maps of this kind is to weave together and rate all of the salient issues, positions and arguments distributed through the community into a single rich, transparent structure – in which each idea and argument is expressed just once – so that anyone can explore quickly and gain a good sense of the perceived merits of the relevant choices.
You can move around the map by clicking on the spheres: clicking on the smallest coloured spheres takes you deeper into an argument, clicking on the largest sphere takes you back up.
As with the other maps in the series you can you can keep up to date with developments on this map via the Independent Minds blog and @TheIndyDebate on Twitter. And you are welcome to embed the map on your own website or blog (like a YouTube video) using the code shown below:
