Mercury and radioactive waste disposal in Sweden: political handling at the local level



Mercury and radioactive waste disposal in Sweden: political handling at the local level



Journal of Environmental Assessment Policy and Management 4(4): 425-447



The paper analyses the political handling of mercury and radioactive waste disposal at the local level, and includes a case study of a Swedish community where there is a conflict concerning a planned deep repository of mercury. The analysis is based on two contrasting lines of planning theory, the trajectory of rational planning and the trajectory of communicative planning.
