"When It Is Unfamiliar To Me: Local Acceptance Of Planned Nuclear Power Plants In China In The Post-Fukushima Era"
Many contributions have been made in the studies of the factors that influence public acceptance of nuclear power. However, previous studies seldom focused on nuclear power plants in the planning stage. Actually public perception is usually more sensitive at the preliminary planning stage of a nuclear power station. Mainly utilizing questionnaire survey and focus group methods, we have identified the factors that are correlated with local acceptance of planned nuclear power plants in China.

Journal Article, Progress in Nuclear Energy
Cooperation between states has been essential for global nu- clear power development from its inception, due to the techno- logical complexity of nuclear energy and the uneven distribution of uranium resources worldwide. International cooperation has suc- cessfully resulted in the peaceful introduction of nuclear power to numerous countries, but has also contributed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in several cases. With the acceleration of the globalization process, the integration of the once-divided global nuclear industry, and the emergence of new proliferation risks since the end of the Cold War (such as new nuclear weapon states, rogue proliferators, or nuclear terrorism), it is necessary to under- stand the nature of civil nuclear cooperation, and its implication on nuclear nonproliferation and export control regimes.

Moreover, if necessary, the provider can request that the items in question be returned from the Islamic Republic.
