The Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) gives all member countries the "inalienable right" to nuclear power for peaceful purposes. With the spread of nuclear power, however, comes the spread of sensitive nuclear technology and material that can be applied to the development of nuclear weapons or be exploited for nuclear terrorism. In a time when alternative energy sources like nuclear power are becoming increasingly attractive, how can we best promote nuclear nonproliferation and prevent nuclear terrorism?
