ABSTRACT

This paper empirically analyzes the effect of understanding necessity, safety, economic benefits of nuclear energy and ROK-US Atomic Energy Agreement on degree of support on nuclear power generation, building on survey results from 313 college students in Republic of Korea. As a result, we have found that understanding necessity, safety, economic benefits of nuclear energy have a positive effect on degree of support on nuclear power generation, and level of knowledge about ROK-US Atomic Energy Agreement plays crucial intermediary role in raising support. In order to increase people’s acceptability of nuclear energy, we have proposed to provide transparent and sufficient information, accurate estimate of economic benefits establishment of economic rewards system and a resolution for spent nuclear fuel reprocessing.
