First-generation radioactive ion-beam facilities have already been in operation for some time. Advanced facilities that will deliver high-intensity radioactive nuclear beams ranging in energy from below the Coulomb barrier to up to several hundred MeV per nucleon (MeV/u) are either starting operation, or under construction or in the planning stage. In this paper the perspectives of using radioactive nuclear beams to study giant resonances in nuclei far from the valley of stability are explored. In particular, emphasis will be made on information on certain nuclear properties that can be gained from such studies.
