Zur Einlagerung hochradioaktiver Reststoffe aus ethischer und politischer Sicht: Bestandsaufnahme und Ausblick

From the book Competing Knowledges – Wissen im Widerstreit

  • Konrad Ott


This article presents some basic topics within the recent German debate on depositories for high-radioactive substances (“radwaste”). The article is organized according to two normative dimensions: security and justice. It points at different tradeoffs, for example between different research strategies, between the principles of reversibility and security, between close and remote future, and between participation and decision-making. Finally, it presents a proposal for a long-term solution.
