The clean-up and decommissioning of the Sellafield Nuclear Licensed Site will be profoundly influenced by the chosen end-state and deciding on potential end states will involve ethical and environmental considerations.

This project will use a whole systems approach to consider and explore Sellafield’s possible end states. The researchers include Katherine Morris (nuclear environment and waste expert), Liz Thomas (heritage and communities peace and reconciliation expert) and Petra Tjitske Kalshoven, (social anthropologist) with Richard Taylor and Francis Livens (nuclear networking via the Dalton Nuclear Institute).

The project will explore a series of credible end state scenarios for the Sellafield site based on the collective expertise and perspectives of the participants.
