    Until March, nuclear power was experiencing what some had come to call a “nuclear renaissance”. The extraordinary events in Fukushima, however, quickly and fundamentally changed the nature of the “nuclear debate”, with several countries now reassessing the safety of nuclear power plants and/or revisiting their plans for new-build. This presentation will examine the consequences of Fukushima events on the debates around of nuclear power — and thereby on the future of nuclear power — with an emphasis on Finland, France and the UK.
