Belfer Center Programs or Projects: International Security
"A truly innovative concept has been proposed by a joint team from the Wharton Business School and Harvard's Kennedy School: "insure to assure." The proposed solution — complementary to the efforts of the IAEA and others — would create a partnership between financial industries and governments to create the world's first international nuclear fuel insurance fund."
This concept, developed by ISP Associate Debra Decker and Managing Director of the Wharton School's Risk Management and Decision Processes Center Erwann Michel-Kerjan, is featured on pages 30–31 of the Global Risks 2008 (.pdf) report of the World Economic Forum as "Energy, Security and Nuclear Non-Proliferation: How Private Markets Can Help."
Decker and Michel-Kerjan first published this concept in ISP Discussion Paper 2007-02, "A New Energy Paradigm: Ensuring Nuclear Fuel Supply and Nonproliferation through International Collaboration with Insurance and Financial Markets".
