A Comment

(p.154) 6 The Politics of the Nuclear Renaissance
The Nuclear Renaissance and International Security

Christopher Way

This chapter summarizes the key findings from the first five chapters and highlighting the implications for the nuclear renaissance. It indicates that the preceding analyses highlight the role of politics in driving or limiting nuclear power development. Given the number of states seeking to provide nuclear assistance to enhance their international influence and the primacy of politics in the nuclear marketplace more generally, access to the requisite technology and know-how is unlikely to stymie the renaissance. Part I is not necessarily optimistic about the prospects for a massive global expansion in nuclear energy. In particular, the domestic politics of the renaissance are not promising in many countries. At the same time, we cannot know for certain what form the renaissance will take. Whatever happens, it is likely that at least a few new nuclear power states will emerge. Even this resurgence could have consequences for international security.
