In its latest World Energy Outlook (2014), the IEA projects the international nuclear industry to undergo substantial changes. Shifts from industrialized to emerging countries are expected. What does that mean for the status quo? A preliminary answer is that existing markets will shrink if not cease to exist while new will emerge. For instance, the Jordanian nuclear program which envisions to use domestically procured uranium (vast resource capacities have been unveiled following a decision in 2007) will open a new uranium mining market as well as potentially other sectoral markets along the nuclear fuel cycle. Will this also open a “pandora’s box” of intransparency and potentially even proliferation?
The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) organizes a seminar with Dr. Vestergaard, Senior Researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), entitled “Governing Uranium”. Dr. Vestergaard talks about the implications associated with shifts in uranium mining.
The event is held Wednesday, 24 June 2015 at 1 p.m. in the Conference Room of the VCDNP. Refreshments are served at 12:45.
