VALDOR Symposium

Mike Egan took part in the third VALDOR symposium in Stockholm, from 9-13 June 2003. He was an author of two papers and chaired one of the plenary sessions on "Efforts towards a broader framing".

VALDOR is concerned with decisions in controversial areas of risk, and is a meeting point for a wide range of disciplines working in the borderland between technical studies, social and political sciences, media and culture. The main themes of this year's meeting were radioactive waste management and gene technology, including discussions of case studies and practical tools as well as academic reviews and research. Quintessa has a strong international network of contacts in this field and is increasingly involved in work for a range of clients that builds on our experiences in dealing with risk information and values.
