Abstract

In order to understand the politics of Chernobyl fallout, we need to approach these debates on different levels. Therefore, this chapter reflects on the following questions: In what ways has Chernobyl “materialized” for different people with different experiences? What role do individual and collective memories play in people's understanding and coming to terms with the aftereffects of the accident? What are the strategies applied to overcome these effects, and how are the different issues interlinked?
