14: Future Energy Needs vs. Non-Proliferation Policies

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / International Law
english language

This session will address the impact of long-term energy demands on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and traditional nuclear non-proliferation policies. The Fukushima accident has had some impact in Western countries but less on nuclear power expansion in emerging markets. Will the transformation in the Middle East lead to a rethinking of nuclear energy projects in the region? Can we expect new or fewer conflicts over resources in 2030? Will export controls prevent or enable countries to embark on new technologies? Are renewables an alternative?
