Brazil’s nuclear policy is at a critical juncture. As existing capabilities expand, successive administrations have in recent years engaged in a multi-stakeholder process to reform the rules and institutions governing the sector. The outcome will have serious implications for nuclear safety and security, the private sector, civilian-military relations, policy accountability, and the future prospects of Brazil’s nuclear capabilities. This is the first attempt to our knowledge to systematically and independently assess the status of these profound transformations, through in-depth consultations across the board.
