French journalist Naike Desquesnes was preparing for a month-long trip to India to present a lecture series on “Covering Nuclear Energy Post-Fukushima” at six Alliance Francaise centres when she received a surprise phone call on September 23.

Philippe Gasparini, Director of Alliance Francaise Bangalore, where her first lecture was scheduled to be delivered on October 10, was calling to say that the subject of her talk had been turned down.
