The role of long-term planning in nuclear waste governance

 

A central challenge in nuclear waste governance is the long time frame over which institutional control of the waste is needed. Most countries favour some kind of underground storage of the high-level wastes, but have not proceeded far with the implementation, yet. Even in Finland, the first country in which an operating licence for a specific disposal site has been issued, closure of the repository is foreseen for the 2120s. This means that several generations of professionals and citizens will have to deal with the waste and related risks. Scientific knowledge as well as preferences will change over time. Thus, a central question for responsible nuclear waste management is to think about how political decision-makers, public administration, industry and the interested public can co-design a governance process over such a long period of time. With this paper we intend to open the debate on those questions by providing a first problem description.
