The objectives of Atoms for Peace: an International Journal (AFP) are to
establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers,
government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons
concerned with the complex role of nuclear energy in society.

It serves as an international forum for exchange of ideas and views on the
global implications of nuclear technology for economic growth, sustainable
development and international security. It also aims to promote and
coordinate developments in the field of energy and water resources. The
international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and
national barriers and to meet the needs of international security

Atoms for Peace will:

* Bring about the emergence of a new voice in the political discourse over
the peaceful use of nuclear energy
* Create an ongoing dialogue between decision makers and the
practitioner-stakeholders in nuclear energy, including representatives from
industry and the armed forces, as well as various other international
constituencies
* Differentiate between those military uses of nuclear necessary for
national defence and international security and those which could be
detrimental to global stability
* Provide a substantive, politically viable and technically feasible draft
framework around which future debate can take place
* Raise the nuclear issue to a position of prominence within the agendas of
world leaders
* Facilitate the process of reaching a new global agreement on nuclear
security.
