This chapter provides an overview of definitions and patterns of peaceful nuclear cooperation. It considers some issues that are pertinent to nuclear cooperation, such as the meaning of peaceful nuclear assistance, the different types of aid that nuclear weapons suppliers can provide, how atomic assistance can be measured, and the historical trends in civilian nuclear cooperation. It also examines six operational categories of peaceful nuclear cooperation: nuclear safety, transfer of intangibles, nuclear materials, research reactors, power reactors, and fuel cycle facilities. Finally, it explains what peaceful nuclear assistance is not. The chapter includes an appendix that discusses the procedures employed to produce a dataset that identifies nuclear cooperation agreements signed between 1945 and 2000.

Keywords:   peaceful nuclear cooperation, peaceful nuclear assistance, nuclear weapons suppliers, nuclear cooperation agreements, nuclear safety, transfer of intangibles, nuclear materials, research reactors, power reactors, fuel cycle facilities
