The development of German, French and Swedish nuclear policies following the Fukushima disaster is part of the dynamics specific to the systems of actors in national debates. Germany is singled out by the construction of a coalition that has led actors with different profiles to support the shutdown of power plants for both economic and ideological reasons. In Sweden, while anti-nuclear parties and associations lost their influence, energy-intensive industrialists reinvested the debate on energy policy. In France, anti-nuclear movements plunged into a deep crisis have failed to challenge the ‘forces’ favourable to atomic energy.
