This book provides, for the first time in a single publication, a collection of basic documents relating to the international law of nuclear energy. The series of introductions facilitate the understanding of the documents and their context. They embrace the four concerns associated with the safe and peaceful use of nuclear energy, i.e. to ensure: that nuclear energy is used in conformity with basic safety standards; that nuclear material and nuclear facilities are protected against theft and sabotage; that nuclear facilities are not subject to attack during armed conflict; and that nuclear material and facilities are not used for military purposes. The book is an invaluable reference work for all those working in the field of international nuclear law and the regulation of the use of nuclear energy as well as for teachers and students of law.
