"Where Should Nuclear Waste be Dumped?"

Op-Ed, The National Interest

By Kathleen Araújo, Former Associate, Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP)/Project on Managing the Atom (MTA), July–August 2014; Former Research Fellow, STPP/MTA, 2013–2014; Former Research Fellow, STPP, 2012–2013 and Behnam Taebi, Research Fellow, Project on Managing the Atom/International Security Program

MTA/ISP Research Fellow Behnam Taebi and former Research Fellow and Associate Kathleen Araújo explore lessons learned from early adopters of consent-based processes in nuclear waste decisions. They argue, whatever waste sites are evaluated, public consent must more fully be taken into account for there to be any chance of durable buy-in.

"The Emerging Field of Energy Transitions: Progress, Challenges, and Opportunities"

Journal Article, Energy Research & Social Science, volume 1

By Kathleen Araújo, Former Associate, Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP)/Project on Managing the Atom (MTA), July–August 2014; Former Research Fellow, STPP/MTA, 2013–2014; Former Research Fellow, STPP, 2012–2013

Energy transitions are an unmistakable part of today's public discourse. Whether shaped by fuel price flux, environmental and security concerns, technology change, or goals to improve energy access, attention turns to ways in which to improve energy pathways. Yet what is understood about energy system change is still emerging. This article explores the evolving field of energy transitions with an aim to connect and enlarge the scholarship.

"OPEC Embargo +40: What Have We Learned?"

Op-Ed, Power & Policy Blog

By Kathleen Araújo, Former Associate, Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP)/Project on Managing the Atom (MTA), July–August 2014; Former Research Fellow, STPP/MTA, 2013–2014; Former Research Fellow, STPP, 2012–2013

"If countries have learned anything, it is that they can protect themselves and become more resilient if they adopt policies and programs that increase their energy self-sufficiency. It turns out that this can be done much more quickly than anyone thought, if they build on what they have."
