New Nuclear Agenda: Prospects for US-Japan Cooperation
The accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station demonstrated quite dramatically the national security risk that civil nuclear power stations can present, and has led to reflections in many countries around the world about the long-term prospects for investments in nuclear energy, and weighing the environmental, economic and safety factors alongside the energy benefits. The New Nuclear Agenda: Prospects for US-Japan Cooperation, edited by Yuki Tatsumi (Stimson’s Senior Associate) explores the complex and multi-faceted nuclear agenda, considering the range of security issues from nuclear energy and technology to proliferation, and considers how it could become a promising new priority for US-Japan cooperation.
