  1. Ethical issues in radiation protection.

    Article - En anglais

    In this note the authors survey existing international radiation-protection recommendations of the ICRP, the IAEA, and the ILO.

    After outlining previous work on the ethics of radiation protection and risk assessment/management, the authors review ethical thinking on five key issues related to radiation protection and ethics.

    They formulate each of these five issues in terms of alternative ethical stances : (1) Equity vs.

    Efficiency, (2) Health vs.

    Economics, (3) Individual Rights vs.

    Societal Benefits, (4) Due Process vs.

    Necessary Sacrifice, and (5) Stakeholder Consent vs.

    Management Decisions.
