The growing importance of finding shared solutions for countries with small arisings of long-lived wastes from nuclear power generation has been increasingly recognised over the last few years. In this paper, we take a systematic look at recent developments focusing in turn on: • international initiatives (IAEA); • regional initiatives the European Union (EU); • national positions for in 3 categories of countries: • those participating in the Arius association that was founded explicitly to promote the multinational concept; • those with specific interests in shared solutions; • those that might consider hosting a repository; • those with laws or policies requiring national disposal. Multinational concepts continue to face challenges that are more difficult than for national programmes. Nevertheless, progress to date indicates that the nuclear communities of the world may well be on the way to optimising radioactive waste management on a global scale.
