Presentation Transcript

Slide 1: 

Communicating Risks with Mobile Phone Systems Stakeholder dialogue and trust-building Björn HedbergSwedish Radiation Protection Authority, SSIwww.ssi.se EuroScience Open Forum 2004

Slide 2: 

Final management of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel Facts - Value-laden judgements - Values Big problems with national programs on radioactive waste disposal Lack of public acceptance and trust Corresponds to different models of decision-making Technocratic < > Pragmatistic < > Decisionistic SSI´s Experience in Risk Communication

Slide 3: 

Final management of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel 8 Feasibility studies… Need for authorities to act as “people's experts” and “guardian of the process” Different municipalities - different needs Information, Dialogue, Debate, Expert-meetings, Hearings… > Improved communication process SSI´s Experience in Risk Communication

Slide 4: 

The DIALOGUE project (1990 – 93) A clear legal base for decisions Review and validation by technical/scientific bodies separated from the political power Distinguish between factual judgements and value-laden judgements Two-way communications between all stakeholders Avoid manipulation SSI´s Experience in Risk Communication

Slide 5: 

The RISCOM Pilot project (1996 - 98) Technical/scientific and value-laden elements interaction between them - “transparency” Need to understand the roles of the different stakeholders Possibilities of evaluating the contribution and authenticity of all actors - “stretching” SSI´s Experience in Risk Communication

Slide 6: 

Stretching A sufficiently demanding environment for all stakeholders, with critical questions raised from different perspectives Transparency The outcome of learning processes that increase all stakeholders’ appreciation of related issues, and provide them with channels to stretch to meet requirements for technical explanations, authenticity, and legitimacy. Transparency requires Communicative Action

Slide 7: 

Facts - Scientific Methods and Technology Legitimacy - Norms Authenticity Personal and organisational integrity/identity/truthfulness What builds Trust RISCOM basics Dialogue to Clarify

But what builds Trust ? : 

But what builds Trust ? Factors in assessing trust and credibility Vincent Covello (93) Competence & expertise Honesty & openness Dedication & commitment Empathy & caring Components of trust (Institutional trustworthiness) Ortwin Renn (98) Competence Openness Fairness Empathy

The RISCOM Model : 

The RISCOM Model

Using the RISCOM - modelPerceptions of Risk and Radiation Protection Criteria : 

Using the RISCOM - modelPerceptions of Risk and Radiation Protection Criteria Dialogue on SSI´s regulations on nuclear waste Regulations very general > guidance needed Seminars and Focus groups - risk concept related to radiation protection criteria Continuing dialogue Include municipality values into the guidance document Response to the expressed needs of the public Expose authority expertise to stretching

RISCOM applications in SSI´s arenas : 

RISCOM applications in SSI´s arenas Nuclear waste Mobile telephones and EMF Medical use of radiation Radioactive waste UV/sun Radon Institutional trustworthiness ?

Debate on New Mobile Phone Systems : 

Debate on New Mobile Phone Systems Aggressive debate in mass media Fragmentation of issues / narrow framing No distinction between facts, value-laden judgments and values Unclear understanding of the roles and arenas of different stakeholders Divergent perceptions of the earlier stages of the mobile phone evolution in Sweden Strategic action instead of communicative action

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Internal discussion and decision (SSI) Preparatory meetings to define the need for a dialogue process Municipal interest very high Extended meetings with a larger set of stakeholders(Other authorities, municipal representatives, industry, NGO:s etc.) Creation of a reference group Preliminary project proposal, mutual agreement, principles for financing Decision to proceed with the project

Slide 14: 

Project Aim To improve the dialogue and transparency in society regarding electromagnetic fields, focusing on new mobile telephone systems, and To increase the mutual understanding of different stakeholders roles and value judgements so that different discussions will be addressed in the right arenas Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Project description Phase 1 Creating a mutual knowledge base – with a focus on interactive seminars Phase 2 Focusing on different types of hearing formats (stretching) Financing of phase 1 will be made by Swedish authorities Phase 2 could possibly be supported also by other financiers

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Project description - Phase 1 1 - Roles and arenas of the different stakeholders Historical evolution - new mobile telephone systems Description of different stakeholders roles and arenas System description – interaction between different stakeholders and arenas A thorough description of the municipal arenas

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Project description - Phase 1 2 - The research basis for the risk judgment Radiation – Physical and biological facts and judgments about non-ionising radiation Risk judgment concerning mobile telephones Different methods for risk judgment The basis for SSI´s judgments and dose limits The situation for individuals who find themselves over-sensitive to electromagnetic fields An international view – results from the Netherlands study

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Project description - Phase 1 3 - Precautionary principles and dose limits The Rio declaration Legal aspects (EU and national legislation) Dose limits for non-ionising radiation Different interpretations and practical implications

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Project description - Phase 1 4 ? Communication and Media Interaction with mass media The role of mass media Project description - Phase 2 Planning will be done at the end of Phase 1 Focus on hearing/stretching/publicity

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems : 

Transparency Forum - Mobile Phone Systems Results ? The only way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him Henry L Stimson A man who trusts nobody is apt to be the kind of man nobody trusts Harold Macmillan www.ssi.se
