Overview

The location of hazardous waste facilities can be approached in dramatically different ways. This book describes various possible approaches in terms of the institutions involved and the arguments that are accepted. A study is reported of the approach to siting that is embedded in the law in three countries (the UK, the Netherlands and Canada), and the way this approach works out in practice. This study allows lessons to be drawn on the practice of hazardous waste siting in general.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The monograph Hazardous Decisions by Dave Huitema has been awarded the G.A. van Poelje Annual Award. A few quotes from the jury report tell you this book is not to be missed:

"Hazardous Decisions is not only accessible but more particularly an exceptionally sound, outstanding and convincingly produced, internationally comparable research based on a practical and theoretical definition of a problem which is extremely relevant. The critical international comparison - and the quality of the book itself - leads to an insightful presentation of a complex subject matter."
