There is already a thread on the Prospects of Nuclear Energy in the US, so I thought I would add one on the international scene. IAEA maintains a policy board - http://www.iaea.org/OurWork/ST/NE/index.html There is an annual publication "Nuclear Technology Review". The 2006 edition is available - www.iaea.org/About/Policy/GC/GC50/GC50InfDocuments/English/gc50inf-3_en.pdf (use 'save target as') Current generation nuclear plants are still being built, and some advanced plants, e.g. the EPR (Flamanville-3 and Olkiluoto-3), are now under construction or are planned. A major issue still remains the final disposition of spent fuel.
