International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
International organization founded in 1957 to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

Based in Vienna, Austria, its activities include research on the applicability of nuclear energy to medicine, agriculture, water location, and industry; provision of technical assistance; development of radiation safeguards; and public-relations programs. Following the Persian Gulf War, IAEA inspectors were called on to certify that Iraq was not manufacturing nuclear weapons.
