A Workshop to extend the Involvement of Stakeholders in Decisions On restoration Management (WISDOM) was held at New College, Oxford from 15 to 17 September 2003. The aim was to promote awareness and interest in the wider application of stakeholder involvement in the formulation of strategies for the management of contaminated agricultural land and produce following a nuclear accident. The workshop, through 25 plenary papers and a set of two facilitated discussion sessions, provided valuable feedback on a wide range of issues including technical and social factors affecting countermeasure selection, acceptability of intervention levels, the challenges of rural waste disposal and crisis management. The workshop achieved its aim and the findings will be disseminated widely. Stakeholder groups are already active in the UK, Finland, Belgium, France and Greece; there was commitment from participants to establish further, similar groups in other member states within the European Union.
