Summary/Abstract: In immediate response to the disaster at Fukushima Daichii, Germany decided to cut off all of its nuclear resources by 2020, and in that manner fully withdraw from using nuclear energy. This study analyzes this decision in the context of the shift in Germany’s dependence to imports of raw materials directed for electricity production. The text accordingly places its focus on the analysis and evaluation of how this change of dependence will affect Germany’s energy security. The study also examines the impact of these changes in terms of Germany’s position in the wider international-political context.
