Matthew D. Leeland (Editor)

Series: Energy Policies, Politics and Prices

Currently, 437 civilian nuclear power reactors are operating in 29 countries, and 56 more are under construction. After the Chernobyl accident, representatives of over 50 nations, including the United States, participated in the development of the Convention on Nuclear Safety, a treaty that seeks to promote the safety of civilian nuclear power reactors. The convention has been in force since 1996. This book explores international policies and issues concerning nuclear safety and management.
