Radiation risk, risk perception and social constructions. Workshop. Oslo (NOR), 1995/10/19.
The introduction of open data networks in the former Soviet Union, even concerning nuclear matters, collided with Soviet myths of, for example nuclear secrets, information prohibition and dangers of international communication.
Moreover, it was considered very complicated.
These myths share many of the features with perception of radiation risk, such as dread, fear and misunderstanding.
The new opportunities for information exchange, created by modern telecommunications and computer networks, can dispel these myths and perceptions concerning radiation risk, provided proper consideration of the myths'origins is taken.
New ways of information exchange, such as creating extensive, international information infrastructures, based on Internet, can create new conditions for presenting the social conditions related to radiation risk.
