In this issue of the Monitor:

  • A detailed update on the unfolding, existential crisis facing Japanese conglomerate Toshiba and its US nuclear subsidiary Westinghouse.
  • David Fig writes about an extraordinary High Court ruling in South Africa that may kill off plans for new power reactors. We also summarize NGO responses to the court ruling.
  • Jan Haverkamp reviews Andy Blowers' book on the nuclear waste legacy.
  • A summary of a new report on the (dim) prospects for small modular reactors in Indonesia.

The Nuclear News section has reports on a public participation phase in relation to Sweden's plan for a nuclear waste repository; many anti-nuclear events in Europe in the coming months; and Chernobyl commemorations on April 26.
