The politics of nuclear energy in the European Union, framing the discourse: actors, positions and dynamics, Pamela M. Barnes ; co-author: Ian Barnes

For the foreseeable future the overall use of nuclear electricity in the European Union is unlikely to change significantly despite the controversies surrounding its use amongst the EU’s nation states.

Analysis presented focuses on the evolution of the discourse on nuclear energy amongst policy makers at European and national levels as well as amongst the public
