Chernobyl – Turning Point or Catalyst? Changing Practices, Structures and Perceptions in Environmental Policy and Politics (1970s-1990s)

International Conference, 2-3 December 2016

What was the impact of the Chernobyl accident on the development and change in environmental policy in Europe? This conference provides important insights on the nexus and relations between nuclear energy, society and politics in Europe East and West. HoNESt cooperates on this bi-lingual international conference (English/German with simultaneous translation) with leading academic and societal institution in the field of environmental history and environmental politics: the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, Munich, the Center for Metropolitan Studies (TU Berlin) and the Centre for Contemporary History Potsdam (ZZF), and the Heinrich-Boell-Foundation, the host of the event. HoNESt researchers are analysing the experience in Sweden (Arne Kaijser), Denmark (Jan-Henrik Meyer), Bulgaria (Ivaylo Hristov), as well as Belarus and Lithuania (Andrei Stsiapanau).

Convenors: Christoph Becker-Schaum (Heinrich-Boell-Foundation), Jan-Henrik Meyer (Copenhagen/HoNESt) and Marianne Zepp (Heinrich-Boell-Foundation)
