[en] OECD/NEA has released the survey study to examine the concerns of nuclear education in member state. In this study, its major contents are introduced and several suggestions are recommended
[en] This project has aimed at development and implementation of nuclear education/training programs and international cooperation for strengthening international human network and basis for export of Korean nuclear R and D technology . Detailed results of the project are summarized below: - Two international education and training programs were developed. Including newly developed program, 9 courses were provided to 180 people. Continued programs were improved reflecting the evaluation results of previous project. - International cooperation in nuclear human resources development including education/training were promoted through 14 activities: strengthening of cooperation with international organizations, networking for nuclear education and training, bilateral cooperation for nuclear human resource development - Education/training infrastructure was strengthened and related facilities were operated: Improvement of 3 education/training facilities/equipment, operation of INTEC accommodating 979 event.
[en] Although the safeguards system of Sodium Fast Reactor (SFR) seems similar to that of Light Water Reactor (LWR), it was raised safeguards challenges of SFR that resulted from the visual opacity of liquid sodium, chemical reactivity of sodium and other characteristics of fast reactor. As it is the basic concept stage of the safeguards of SFR in Korea, this study tried to analyze the latest similar study of safeguards issues of the Fast Breeder Reactor (FBR) at Joyo and Monju in Japan. For this reason, this study is to introduce some potential safeguards challenges of Fast Breeder Reactor. With this analysis, future study could be to address the safeguards challenges of SFR in Korea
[en] The long-term safety of radioactive waste disposal is assessed by the consequence analysis of radionuclides release, of which the final step is carried out by the biosphere assessment. the radiation dose is calculated from the food chain modeling which especially necessitates site-specific input database and exposure pathways. A biosphere model in consideration of new exposure pathways has been analyzed, and a program for food chain calculation has been developed. The up-to-data input data are reflected and the new exposure pathways are considered in the program, so the code shows more realistic and reliable results
[en] In May 1999, IAEA issued Medium Term Strategy. The strategy takes a one house approach on the basis of the Agency's mandate : technology, safety and verification. As the strategy forms a valid basis for the Agency's work, it will affect significantly the establishment of detailed cooperation between the Agency and Member States. This paper analyzed the contents of the strategy by its goals and examined responses from Member States. Also the paper provides the measures to make the most of the strategy
[en] As a group of nuclear-advanced countries, the OECD/NEA mainly deals with the aspects of science and technology and future policy of nuclear energy. It is very important for us to develop nuclear advanced technology and enhance the global environemnt of nuclear utilization and development through the OECD/NEA. It is required for us to timely obtain and analyse the up-to-date nuclear technology information and to build up a system to collect and distribute nuclear technology information from NEA committees. In this study, measures for effective utilization of the NEA information have been established through the analysis of the activities of the experts meeting in each standing technical committee and of technology information. In this regard, it is also developed a homepage to disseminate reports from NEA Committees participants as one of the strengthening measures
[en] This study addresses four arenas to effectively assist national nuclear foreign policies under international nuclear nonproliferation regimes and organizations. Firstly, this study analyzes the trends of the international nuclear non-proliferation regime, which includes the Treaty on the Non-proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the international nuclear export control regime, and proposals for assurance of nuclear fuel supply. Secondly, this study analyzes the trends of international nuclear organizations, which include the IAEA as a central body of international nuclear diplomacy and technical cooperation and the OECD/NEA as a intergovernmental organization to consist of nuclear advanced countries. Thirdly, this study predicts the nuclear foreign policy of Obama Administration and reviews U. S.-India nuclear cooperation. Lastly, this study analyzes the nuclear issues of North Korea and current issues for regulation of nuclear materials.
[en] The revision issue of Article VI of the IAEA's Statute that deals with the composition of the IAEA's Board of Governors was concluded at 43th General Conference in 1999. This article identifies the process of revision of Article VI and suggests the future prospects and the conditions to enter into force the Article
[en] It is essential for Korea to enlarge nuclear energy utilization and development and to develop nuclear fuel cycle technology. However some domestic and international restraints are existing to achieve above goals. Therefore, the consideration for the environmental prospect of nuclear energy development is needed to solve those restraints. The current North Korea's policies and future relations between two countries in Korean peninsular in respect to domestic restraints are examined and forecasted in Chapter 2. This analysis tries to develop new approaches to solve internal and external major problems through forecasting the future on nuclear nonproliferation policy of U. S. An in-depth study on resolving international and inter-Korean restrictions in political and strategic perspectives is carried out in Chapter 3. The various policy alternatives to adjust the constraints of the joint declaration are proposed and analysed in Chapter. It contains also the national commitments that are suggested as ideas on how to advance the long-term nuclear research and development under the present situation. (author). 100 refs
