Occasional Paper

Edward Blandford - Stanton Nuclear Security Postdoctoral Fellow

Blandford and May review the major lessons learned from nuclear power accidents, and assess the impact those lessons have had on nuclear power, specifically, which measures were put into place to prevent similar accidents from occurring. They then make observations and recommendations for future safety and security measures.
