Abstract:     
Should nations that export nuclear power plants to developing countries be potentially liable to the people of those countries for catastrophic accidents? Risk of accident can be reduced if international law compels upgrading of safety design and construction of nuclear plants. Both the international law of state responsibility and an international regulatory agency have roles to play.
