Research: stakeholders to play central role in the management of contaminated goods following a nuclear accident

In the framework of the European research project PREPARE, IRSN piloted a study to improve the management of contaminated products following a nuclear accident. Some of the main findings include the need to involve the stakeholders in discussions and the decision-making process. This means not taking measures for them but with them.

The results of research led by IRSN under the PREPARE European program are based on discussions with stakeholders (producers, manufacturers, retailers, consumers, experts, associations, academics, etc.) in 11 European countries and on accounts by stakeholders in Japan who have had to deal with managing the Fukushima Daiichi accident.

Taking into account the viewpoints of stakeholders aims to respect their social and cultural values. It’s also an opportunity to forge relationships, or rebuild them insofar as possible, based on understanding and trust between stakeholders, and to draw on existing networks.

The study has also revealed the potentially conflicting health, economic and ethical concerns that arise in a post-accident situation, and just how difficult it can be to reach a compromise between stakeholders with conflicting interests.
