    In the context of the European Union’s ambitious climate change policy, its search for an enhanced energy security and the high and volatile oil and gas prices, it comes as no surprise that nuclear power is back on the political agenda at both European and national level. As a result, many governments are under internal and external pressure to at least reconsider their nuclear policy. A crucial question hereby is to what extent the European Union can play a role, if any. This contribution briefly discusses the recurring arguments in the nuclear debate. It subsequently examines the present status of nuclear energy in the EU Member States, thereby looking at the various national policies. Finally this paper deals with the European Union’s approach towards nuclear power.
