Authors discuss the origins of legal instruments and practices in the areas of nuclear safety and emergency response, as well as the IAEA's mandate in nuclear verification. Others consider how liability could be established in a court of law in cases of radiation exposure and how to strengthen the global nuclear liability regime.

Hard copies of the book will be given out at the agency's First International Conference on Nuclear Law: The Global Debate (ICML2022), which is being held in Vienna from 25 to 29 April.

Full details are available on the IAEA website.
