    Železnik, Nadja ; Polič, Marko, 1946- ; Kos, Drago, 1953-
    Slovenia is one of few EU nuclear countries still without a repository for radioactive waste. Between 1990 and 1993 there was an attempt to site the location for low and intermediate level waste ... (LILW) repository which failed due to applied define -- announce -- defend (D-A-D) approach to the selection. Later the site seletion process was completely changed to the mixed mode approach in which public involvement and participation become as much important as technical evaluations. Voluntarism, public participation and involvement have very important role in the new site selection for the LILW repository. Although the process is long lasting, going on already from 1997 with preparation of the public involvement procedure, it proved that it could be successful. By the end of 2007 there are 2 local communities out of 5 volunteering which agreed to participate in the site selection process through specially established instrument called local partnership. In order to accomodate the siting process to the expectation of the public Slovenian national Agency for field of public acceptability. The key factors the public acceptability like trust, credibility of the main stekeholders in the process, knowledge and understanding of the processes, perception of the influence and consequences of the repository and similar were studied. From the research the lay public conception of the radioactivity and LILW repository was obtained which provide the basis for implementation of public involvement process and will help ARAO to improve the communication programs and in this way increase also public acceptability for the risky perceived facilities. The paper summarizes the research activities in the field and related improved public relations activities.
