Gouverner par le temps : Cadrages temporels du problème des déchets radioactifs et construction d’une irréversibilité technique

Abstract : This paper examines how actors use time as a strategic resource for planning radioactive waste management. Some of these protagonists have managed to keep this controversial technical project alive by playing off several temporalities at cognitive and organizational levels. In an attempt to break out of the deadlock of waste management through deep repositories, they changed the project’s timeline by creating a legislative schedule, including in it a phase devoted to research meant to be independent from the industrial project, and making changes at an institutional level. Nevertheless, the new political framing is still subordinate to the initial technical framing which, however, has now become invisible. Consequently, instead of being alternatives, the two framings have coexisted in two different spheres, one public and one confined. This has maintained the technical framing which, in turn, helps explain the strengthening over time of technological lock-in around waste storage.
