Australia's Uranium alternate explores why the export of uranium is still a hugely arguable factor in Australia and the way this impacts Australia's engagement with the strategic, regime and industry nation-states of overseas nuclear affairs. The ebook makes a speciality of the foremost demanding situations dealing with Australian coverage makers in a twenty-first century context the place civilian nuclear power intake is increasing considerably whereas even as the overseas nuclear nonproliferation regime is topic to expanding, and exceptional, pressures. by way of concentrating on Australia as a in demand case research, the e-book is anxious with how a historically powerful supporter of the overseas nuclear nonproliferation regime is making an attempt to recalibrate its curiosity in maximizing the commercial and diplomatic merits of elevated uranium exports in the course of a interval of flux within the strategic, regime and marketplace nation-states of nuclear affairs. Australia's Uranium alternate presents broader classes for a way – certainly even if – nuclear providers all over the world are adapting to the altering nuclear setting the world over.

Given the real threats that have been made in the past against its Lucas Heights facility, Australia is well placed to initiate cooperation without appearing to be exclusively concerned with the threats posed to and by others’ nuclear facilities. Joint nuclear security training exercises and exchanges of best practice could also be envisaged, followed by, as confidence builds, the more sensitive peer review type of exchange in the longer term. Above all, Australian policy towards a nuclear energy revival in its region needs to be couched in terms that do not give the impression that it is seeking to deny any state the perceived benefits (however apparently ill-advised in particular cases) of a technology that Australia has, for the foreseeable future, rejected for itself.
For a nuclear reactor such a commitment stretches over decades—at least 60 years from initial planning to decommissioning. For high-level, long-lasting nuclear waste, some of which can remain radioactive for millennia, the commitment is essentially forever. While the existing nuclear energy states have learned through experience and trial and error, this is not possible or permissible in the current era. Norms, expectations and standards have evolved. The IAEA estimates that it can take at least 10 years for a state with no nuclear experience to prepare itself for hosting its first nuclear power plant.
