Abstract

This special issue shows that borders affected various kinds of nuclear installations in different parts of Europe in a similar way. While at a symbolic level, nuclear waste sites and breeders were much more controversial than power plants, patterns of cross-border conflict and transboundary protest were remarkably similar across all kinds of nuclear installations. Utilities, policy makers and protesters were facing similar problems and opportunities.
