Alicia's research is focusing on an assessment of the evolving interpretations of Hiroshima and Nagazaki, as well as the question of the atom bomb more generally, among different constituencies in Finland and Sweden from 1945 to 1962 based on untapped primary material. These constituencies include the press, military perspectives, as well as parliamentarians. The project is supported by the EU Nonproliferation Consortium.
