Radioactive Waste Management in International and European Legal Perspective (Paperback)
about this item
The management of radioactive waste in Europe and elsewhere has been the subject of continuous legal and political challenges, both in court rooms and by environmental groups and NGO's in the field. The transport of such waste, in particular, has often caused considerable public concern and has led to blockades of roads, police interventions and more. One of the purposes of this book is to examine and discuss some important legal aspects of the management of radioactive waste, notably regarding the state of the relevant Law of the European Union. This book - inspired by the workshops 'The Management of Radioactive Waste and the Duty to Care for Health and Environment' which took place in Sassari, Sardinia and 'Radioactive waste: The Management of Radioactive Waste and its Transport in European and International Legal Perspective' in Lille, France - and its contributions demonstrate convincingly how important but also how difficult proper and acceptable management of radioactive waste is.
