|Abstract:||Since 2000, the EURATOM Framework Programmes have dedicated political attention and economic support to public participation in radioactive waste management (RWM). Although a one-fit-all solution for a participatory RWM does not exist, the diversity that characterizes the European Union (EU) offers a relevant pool of knowledge and experience. The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission has used the knowledge and experience cumulated by relevant EURATOM projects to define a list of general principles for a more participatory approach to RWM. The basis of our analysis is a review of final reports on the studies and research funded and executed in the framework of the EURATOM scheme over the last fifteen years. The principles explained in this article can ultimately work as indications for the changes and strategic actions that are needed for a better RWM in the EU.|
