Abstract

An attempt of risk communication in the form of repetitive dialogue forum has been conducted to improve the relationship between nuclear industry and public. Though this attempt is in its early stage, several important observations have been obtained. The role of risk communication for improving the public trust in nuclear industry and for maintaining the nuclear risk within a reasonable level will be described in this paper.
