Abstract: This study focuses on presenting how nuclear power has been reintroduced in the energy debate during the last few years, as it is being discussed how this low-carbon energy generating technology can help mitigate the effects of climate change. Furthermore, it analyses the advantages of nuclear power, but especially the disadvantages that nuclear technologies need to overcome to rise to the challenge of climate change. In particular, the disposal of radioactive waste. The concept of radioactive waste and the current methods for its disposal are explained before studying what international legal instruments regulate about the issue. Following this, especial reference is made upon the specific legal frameworks affecting the disposal of radioactive waste in France and Spain and the current solutions they offer for a waste that is mainly generated by their nuclear power plants.
