Abstract : Governments have funded most of the nuclear industry s research and development, financed or guaranteed loans for its construction and export of nuclear plants, capped its liability for off-site damages in the case of nuclear accidents, and promoted its development internationally. Throughout, officials have insisted that the dangers of nuclear weapons proliferation attendant to the further spread of nuclear energy programs are manageable.
