Chapter Summary

This chapter evaluates Japan's nuclear energy policies and explores the potential cooperation these may have with China's energy market. The first part of the chapter explores how Japan's nuclear strategy is designed to achieve energy security, exploring the main gains and limitations impacting policy implementation and the extent to which Japan's approach to nuclear energy is dictated exclusively by energy dependency. The second part evaluates China's present nuclear energy situation and highlights potential trends and prospect in this field. The third and final part assesses the circumstances and conditions that will incline Japan and China to engage in, develop and deepen their nuclear energy cooperation. It investigates whether nuclear energy cooperation can significantly improve the two countries' energy security equation, and in what way nuclear energy cooperation influences the political frameworks within which these two states operate.

Keywords: China's nuclear energy; energy security; Japan's nuclear strategy
