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.
