The Renewal of Nuclear Power in Finland
Finnish nuclear decisions in 2001 (nuclear waste) and 2002 (nuclear power) raised a number of questions concerning the decision-making process, risk evaluation, public participation, lobbying and transparency around the nuclear decisions of the Parliament of Finland. This book provides insights into how Finland reached its decision on nuclear power. The focus on the decision-making process highlights the way in which the conflicting views of various parties and lobbies interacted. It gives a comprehensive description of how the Finnish democracy functions and what other instruments of power were in use. Thus the book also contributes to policy studies as it highlights some recent features of how the governance of the field functions. Theoretical emphasis is on the complexity of policy governance: complex interplay of actors, actor coalitions, resources, the rules of the game, policy discourses and institutional socio-techno-cultural circumstances.
