This new title, written by nuclear law expert Helen Cook, is a unique and invaluable handbook covering all aspects of the legislative framework for nuclear power and nuclear power projects.

It gives you an all-inclusive overview of nuclear law and nuclear power projects, providing a foundation upon which governments and regulators can pave the future of nuclear power, particularly in emerging markets. Not only does it acts as a practical guide for development corporations, technical consultants and financiers operating in this area, but it is also a detailed and up to date reference book for practitioners and students of the legal discipline.

The book examines the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) guidelines and provides a "roadmap" for programme development and implementation, giving you insight into and guidance on future developments and amendments to existing legislative and regulatory infrastructure for nuclear power programmes.
