Abstract

This article examined 1F decommissioning policy from a viewpoint of the social science and from a history of the governance of TMI-2 Cleanup Program in U.S.A. This article performed comparative analysis with partnership type decommissioning governance of TMI-2 based on the GEND agreement and the central government-led model decommissioning governance of 1F. The author got the following 3 important conclusions. Firstly, the improvement and innovation of the 1F decommissioning governance, based upon scientific examination and the discussion by a variety of people concerned are necessary. The second is importance of the formation of “Ba (place) of Dialogue” with the local communities.
