Stimson Center Hosts NPEC Panel Discussion on Moving Beyond Pretense: Nuclear Power and Nuclear Proliferation

On September 10, 2014, Matthew Kroenig of Georgetown University and Patrick Roberts of Virginia Tech joined NPEC's executive director and Brian Finlay of the Stimson Center's Managing Across Boundaries Initiative to discuss their chapters from NPEC's latest volume. The event marked the release of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center’s latest research publication, Moving Beyond Pretense:  Nuclear Power and Nuclear Proliferation.

Most governments, including our own, have made the global development of nuclear power a priority in their efforts to assure energy security and to curb global warming. Supporters of nuclear power argue that the attendant nuclear weapons proliferation dangers are manageable either by making future nuclear plants more “proliferation-resistant” or by strengthening International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards and acquiring more timely intelligence on proliferators.

 

How sound is this view? How useful might civilian nuclear programs be for states that want to quickly acquire nuclear weapons? Are current International Atomic Energy Agency nuclear safeguards sufficient to block military nuclear diversions from civilian programs? Are there easy fixes to upgrade these controls? How much can we count on more timely intelligence on proliferators to stem the further spread of nuclear weapons?
