Nuclear Power, Weapons Proliferation, and Climate Change: Carnegie Corporation Funds New Issue of Journal Daedalus to Explore the Global Nuclear Future

Grantees in this story

In the future there will be more nuclear technology spread across more nations than ever before. Will the growth of nuclear power lead to increased risks of nuclear weapons proliferation and nuclear terrorism? Will the nonproliferation regime be adequate to ensure safety and security in a world more widely and heavily invested in nuclear power? Read the press release.

Policy experts, economists, scientists, and nuclear industry leaders from various perspectives and nations explore these questions in a special two-volume issue of Daedalus, the journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The volume is part of the Academy's multi-year Global Nuclear Future Initiative, a project that brings together research groups focused on the nuclear industry, the future fuel cycle, the protection of nuclear materials, and the emergence of a new international nuclear regulatory regime. Support for the Global Nuclear Future Initiative was provided in part by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
