Nuclear waste governance and storage is a wicked problem. A technically feasible, "safe" and socially accepted storage of (highly) radioactive waste represents one of the most pressing challenges for politics, science and society. In Germany and worldwide a thorny debate about a feasible solution and suitable locations for a central nuclear repository has been taking place - without resolution - for nearly forty years. The issue has gained new momentum and the need for action has been triggered by the release of the Directive 2011/70/Euratom. Member States with nuclear facilities are to submit a report on the implementation of national programmes for safe management of spent fuel and radioactive waste by 2015.
The aim of the Seminar is to discuss from a social and political perspective the preconditions for the development of an acceptable strategy for nuclear waste storage in different countries. This includes the identification of stakeholders and their interests, responsibilities, value systems, views and expectations as well as paths for a constructive approach to dialogue and problem-solving. A focal point will be an analysis of acceptance patterns and steering mechanisms for conflict resolution.
