Volume 7, Issue 3, 2010
Contents include an Editorial by Professor Blowers and five research papers focusing on issues of participation in radioactive waste policy covering the Nordic countries and the UK. Radioactive waste has long been the Achilles Heel of the nuclear industry. In opening this Special Issue the Editors Andrew Blowers and Goran Sundqvist describe radioactive waste as an apparently insoluble problem continuing into the far future, blotting nuclear?s copybook and blocking the onward progress of nuclear energy. In every country with a nuclear industry it has proved hard to find technically convincing and socially acceptable solutions.
