by Peter Riley
International Journal of Nuclear Law (IJNUCL), Vol. 1, No. 1, 2006

Abstract: The argument for justification of the nuclear electric power development is examined in the following terms: practicability, economic and new build-up; effects on health; safety; security; the environment; issues and opportunities to overcome barriers to its development are identified. Uncertainties are identified in the areas of health and security that must be acknowledged and tackled from an international base. The practicalities of deployment of nuclear energy to offset world poverty are discussed; the principle objectives identified and legal measures to overcome barriers to the continuing development of the nuclear energy are suggested.
