Nuclear Governance


About the Project

The Energy Studies Institute (ESI) and the Centre for International Law (CIL), both of NUS, have secured a research grant from Singapore’s National Research Foundation entitled “Policy and Law for Nuclear Safety and Security” as part of the Singapore Government’s Nuclear Policy Research Programme (NPRP Award No. NRF2014NPR-NPRP001-005). With funding of over two million Singapore Dollars, the three-year Nuclear Governance Project, which began on 4 January 2016, is staffed by a multidisciplinary academic team carrying out research in the governance of nuclear safety, security and civil liability for nuclear damage.

The project will focus on two main research areas: international, regional and national legislative and regulatory frameworks for nuclear safety and security; and nuclear liability.

Dr Philip Andrews-Speed, Senior Principal Fellow at ESI is the principal investigator for the project. Associate Professor Robert Beckman, Head of Ocean Law and Policy at CIL, is the co-principal investigator.
