The ESI-CIL Nuclear Governance Project organised a two-day training course on civil liability for nuclear damage for Singapore Government officials which was held on 17 and 18 January 2017 at the Energy Studies Institute. This course is the first of a number of short training courses that the project will run for Singapore’s government officials and was attended by close to 20 officials from seven different ministries and agencies. The instructors for the course were Dr Nathalie Horbach, an international nuclear law expert (and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s International Expert Group on Nuclear Liability); Professor Gunther Handl, the Eberhard P. Deutsch Professor of Public International Law at Tulane University Law School as well as CIL Senior Research Fellow Mr Anthony Wetherall. As part of the course, a compilation of selected documents on civil liability for nuclear damage was prepared and it is available for download here.
