L'autonomie du droit nucléaire : Contribution à l'étude de la nature et des caractères d'un droit nouveau

Abstract : The discovery of nuclear reactions at the end of the 19th century lead to the apparition of a whole set of new activities in the fields of medicine, industry, research and defense. Nuclear law allows the exploitation of nuclear reactions while limiting their noxious effects. Multiple issues are at stake when it comes to nuclear law, as it holds sway over domains such as the safety of nuclear installations, the responsability of managers, the protection of human health and environment, and also the information and participation of the public. This paper highlights the distinctive features of nuclear law, and demonstrates the autonomy of this division of law. Nuclear law is autonomous when derogatory rules of common law are applicable. It translates into the existence of principles of its own. This autonomy can also be based on specificities linked to the sources, the characters, and the overall purposes. The autonomy of nuclear law remains limited, as common elements with other laws can be identified. It is the case, for instance, of the principles of prevention, protection and sustainable development. The autonomy of nuclear law thus leads to interrogations on the real impact of broader concepts, especially the concept of legal system.
