The events at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March 2011 and the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) part in the international response to the disaster, underscored the critical role the IAEA continues to play in ensuring global nuclear safety. The world’s hub of cooperation in the nuclear field, the IAEA is the nucleus around which all other parts of the global nuclear governance system revolve, promoting safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies. In this 160-page report by CIGI Senior Fellow Trevor Findlay, all aspects of the Agency’s mandate and operations from its major programs on safeguards, safety, security and the peaceful uses of nuclear energy to governance, management and finance are examined. Unleashing the Nuclear Watchdog confirms that the IAEA requires strengthening and reform in certain areas, but does not need a dramatic overhaul. The report includes key strategic and programmatic recommendations.

The result of more than two years of research, this report is a joint undertaking by CIGI and the Canadian Centre for Treaty Compliance at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University in Ottawa.

Report Launch Date: July 20, 2012 at Norman Paterson School of International Affairs
