Most of the articles in this issue of the Monitor concern the deepening nuclear power crisis:

  • The first three articles concern the latest crises affecting Toshiba (which now acknowledges "substantial doubt" about its ability to continue as a going concern), and its subsidiary Westinghouse (which filed for bankruptcy protection on March 29).
  • David Lowry writes about the scandalous mismanagement of a decommissioning program in the UK, which has led the UK government to agree to a £100 million (US$125m) out-of-court settlement.
  • Shaun Burnie from Greenpeace writes about the Japanese government's efforts to keep TEPCO afloat, and summarizes a new study that estimates that the costs of the Fukushima disaster could range from US$449‒628 billion.
  • Pete Roche writes about the French nuclear scandal at Areva's Creusot Forge.
  • Jan Haverkamp summarizes nuclear power issues across Europe, with an emphasis on Eastern Europe.
