This interdisciplinary conference will address challenges for the governance of nuclear energy and energy systems in general in the context of political transformations in several settings and time periods. The participants will discuss these transformations in still weakly-studied former communist geographies of Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and compare them to the experience of such non-communist European countries with authoritarian past as Spain and Greece.
