|Title:||NUCLEAR RESOURCES AND NATIONALISM - THE BRAZILIAN CASE|
|Abstract:||This study describes the international political context that led Brazil to adopt nationalistic directives in its thorium and uranium resources policy. These directives, since their origin in 1947, have remained constant throughout the various reformulations of Brazilian nuclear policy. They are present in the 1988 Constitution, where the state monopoly over nuclear resources is maintained. The nationalistic directives, by emphasizing the strategic nature of uranium ores, did not encourage the development of an industry oriented for the production and international commercialization of this nuclear energy mineral commodity.|
