Dealing with Interests, Values and Knowledge in Managing Risk

Workshop Proceedings, Brussels, Belgium 18-21 November 2003

image of Dealing with Interests, Values and Knowledge in Managing Risk

These workshop proceedings deal with the local partnership methodology employed in Belgium in order to develop an integrated proposal to the national government to construct and operate a disposal facility for low-level radioactive waste that is adapted to local conditions. The partnerships were formed among representatives of local organisations in affected communities and representatives of the Belgian national radioactive waste management agency. Insights are provided into a unique - and so far very successful - governance approach to dealing with interests, values and knowledge in managing risk.



International Perspective

Nuclear Energy Agency

The members of Belgian local partnerships invited the delegates of the international community to participate as partners in the discussions and showed great openness in sharing their problems, achievements, and concerns. Similarly to the Finnish and Canadian workshops, the meeting in Belgium represented a highly instructive experience for the FSC community. The FSC workshop broadened mutual learning around the Belgian local partnerships to an international level.
