How does one effectively involve stakeholders? How does one build and assess public confidence? How can broader stakeholder involvement help decision makers to make well-informed decisions that effectively address stakeholder views? These and other questions were discussed in Paris on 17-19th January.

NEA Workshop on Stakeholder Involvement in Nuclear Decision Making

Decisions concerning nuclear energy are complex and long term. They employ large tracts of land and use many resources. Experts cannot act alone to solve difficult problems, it is important that public stakeholders participate in the decision-making too. The workshop allowed experts from different nuclear fields to compare their varied experiences in stakeholder involvement and identify what practices have been successful and which have not.

CERAD PhD student Yevgeniya Tomkiv presented the Norwegian experience in dealing with consequences of Chernobyl accident in cooperation with the Sami population.
