Peaceful uses of nuclear energy and IAEA safeguards and related activities

For many years international discussions on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy—both within the United Nations and elsewhere—have reflected two divergent approaches. In the first approach, stress is laid on the potential benefits of the peaceful application of this source of energy to a variety of purposes, particularly the generation of electric power. That approach is to some extent in conflict with the second approach, which emphasizes the risks engendered by the spread of nuclear material, equipment and technology that might lend themselves to the manufacture of nuclear weapons.
