The BNFL National Stakeholder Dialogue was the biggest nuclear stakeholder dialogue exercise in the UK, and probably in the world. It was a research project ahead of its time in the nuclear sector. The resources produced by the Dialogue are available below.
Running from 1998 to 2004, the Dialogue involved a wide range of individuals and organisations interested in or concerned about nuclear issues and aimed to ‘inform BNFL’s decision-making process about the improvement of their environmental performance in the context of their overall development’.
It is important to ask what relevance the Dialogue has today. The nuclear landscape has changed significantly with time; however, the attitudes and arguments both pro- and anti-nuclear have remained, arguably, practically unchanged, so the Dialogue still has much to teach and many questions to ask.
The Beam has recognised that the experience, learning and products gained through the Dialogue still have relevance; and that these outputs may play a role in future discussions in the UK nuclear arena.
