Cornell University’s Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and Meridian 180 are pleased to invite you to an expert briefing on nuclear accident compensation schemes, taking place on Friday 19 May 2017; 02:00 – 03:30PM in Brussels’ Steigenberger Hotel.
As the EU works towards a more sustainable energy landscape in the face of climate change, the role of nuclear energy is again the subject of debate – from discussions about France’s heavy dependence on nuclear energy production to Germany’s decision to phase out nuclear power by 2022. Countries around the world are looking to nuclear as part of their plan to reduce carbon emissions. But nuclear power carries very high risks, as catastrophic accidents have already demonstrated.
Six years after the meltdown at Fukushima, Cornell University’s Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and Meridian 180 bring top experts from the U.S. and Japan to Brussels to discuss current practices and necessary reforms in the fields of nuclear safety and risk preparedness.
The event will offer expert insights drawn from the Einaudi Center and Meridian 180’s upcoming comparative study of U.S., Soviet/post-Soviet, and Japanese nuclear accident compensation schemes, which assesses the previously hidden costs of nuclear energy that have been exposed by the accidents at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima.
