Governing Uranium

The international obligations that accompany the global production, trade, and protection of uranium
Project Info

Uranium is a common element, used primarily for civilian purposes, such as energy in nuclear power plants. It can also be used for the development of nuclear weapons, which turn has made uranium one of the most internationally-governed elements, falling under a range of treaty obligations to ensure it is not misused, diverted or stolen. The Governing Uranium project focuses on the governance structure of the front end of the nuclear fuel cycle, from uranium production and the processing and transport of yellow cake to the conversion facility.
