Brazilian Perspectives on Nuclear Material Control

Olga Mafra, Carlos Feu Alvim, e José Goldemberg

The nuclear energy revival enjoyed in the last years stimulated by the greenhouse effect issue and by the increase of oil prices has also rekindled concerns about the safe and peaceful use of nuclear energy.

Several meetings have been organized by different foreign organizations that deal with the theme and that want to know more about the Brazilian case. The regional solution found to alleviate possible tensions between Brazil and Argentina have discouraged the possession of nuclear weapons and attracts the interest of these organizations. There is as well the interest in resuming the nuclear program both in Brazil and Argentina and the Brazilian intention of constructing a nuclear-propelled submarine. The article analyzes the Brazilian perspectives in the area.
