Nuclear Plant Decommissioning

Transnational dialogue on decommissioning of nuclear power plants: New England (USA) & Northwest Russia

On May 19, with partners in the northeast United States and northwestern Russia, CPDCS hosted an online conference about the ongoing dangers of decommissioning nuclear power plants. Among the lessons of the session are the  ways local and regional communities are being placed in danger, the importance of ending the incestuous relationship between the nuclear power producers and regulators, the need for greater  transparency. Speakers included expert scientists, a provincial Russian official, and community based-activist working to ensure their communities’ safety. The conference also demonstrated the possibilities of people-to-people dialog and exchanges even in difficult times.
