    The overall aim of this thesis was to offer a more holistic understanding of the risk communication in emergency preparedness that emphasises the relationships between the key actors. This aim was pursued by adressing the following research questions in the four individual papers comprising this thesis: 1. Investigate whether recommendations for communication of radiological risks were followed after the fukushima accident, 2. Quantify the value of collaborative deliberation in stakeholder seminars as opposed to a one-way information provision, 3. Explore public needs concerns, responses and expectations with regard to radiological emergencies, 4. Explore the applicability of evaluation criteria for assessing the quality of stakeholder involvement.
