This document is a synthesis of the 8th National Workshop and Community Visit of the Forum on Stakeholder Confidence (FSC) held in Östhammar, Sweden on 4-6 May 2011. Representatives of local, regional and national government, civil society organisations and environmental groups, as well as the regulator SSM and implementer SKB, illustrated the siting history and aspirations for the future. Discussed were the experience and history of the Swedish programme, the Swedish funding system that supported stakeholder involvement throughout the Environmental Impact Assessment process, and the Added Value programme that benefits the two municipalities involved – Oskarshamn and Östhammar. This document provides a synthesis of all the workshop presentations, accounts of round table discussions among the 90 participants representing 13 countries, and an International Perspective essay.
