Summary Activity Report - ARGONA (Arenas for risk governance)

Project ID: 36413
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-NUWASTE

Abstract

This is the summary report of the ARGONA project, which had been funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The main goal for the ARGONA project was to demonstrate how participation and transparency can be implemented in radioactive waste management (RWM) programmes. The project report consists of a series of work packages that starts with an analysis of the policy-making structures that exist within the European Union (EU) and in the participating countries, including EU directives as well as national nuclear safety and environmental legislation. The final report and this summary report have similar structure to make it easy to combine the reading of the two. For example, a reader who finds a subject in the summary report for which he or she wants to go into more detail, he (or she) can go to this full final report where the individual chapters have the responsible work package leaders or task leaders as authors. End user input made it evident that there is a need for guidance for the application of approaches to participation and transparency. It was suggested that such guidelines could be divided into two different forms:

1) general guidelines or principles for the governance of nuclear waste management; and
2) more specific and pragmatic guidance, using e.g. best practice and examples.

The suggested guidelines has the purpose to be a first step towards meeting this need.
