Energising the Future

Vol. 46-1

June 2004

In a context where 1.5 billion people don’t have access to electricity, while energy needs continually increase, the June 2004 IAEA Bulletin edition focuses on energy-generating nuclear power. Articles also report on matters surrounding nuclear energy, such as waste management, nuclear education, the public opinion, innovation, safety, security, and illicit trafficking. Jacques Baute, Director of the IAEA’s Iraq Nuclear Verification Office, and Hans Blix, former Director General of the IAEA and United Nations’ chief weapons inspector from 2000 to 2003, give their views of the nuclear inspections that took place in Iraq prior to the second Gulf War.
