|Resumen : ||Introduction: The objective of the present case study was to identify and analyse the societal and communication
uncertainties around a nuclear radiological event in Spain, as well as to understand public and stakeholders’ response
to these uncertainties.
Method: We base the study on the implementation of three data collection processes: a review of documents, a media
analysis (n=275), and semi-structured interviews with the affected population (n=10) and relevant stakeholders (n=13).
First, we describe the event by means of documentary review. Second, we identify five main groups of socio-technical
uncertainties related to the consequences of the incident; the communication of the incident; the effects of the incident;
the management of the incident and the characteristics of the incident. Finally, via in terviews with the key stakeholders,
we identify and analyse a more exhaustive set of societal uncertainties around the incident, especially those linked to
issues such as risk perception and communication and involvement with the local population.
Results: Communicative aspects around the emergency (such as the timing of the communication, the amount and
characteristics of the information provided, the perceived transparency, the actors involved) played a critical role in the
development of the emergency, together with other issues related to the characteristics of the event and the management
of the incident or its consequences.
Discussion: The findings suggest that providing transparent, timely and accurate information about a radiological
incident by the competent authorities may improve local trust and confidence in the case of a nuclear emergency.|
