abstract = "This paper explores the effects of long term communication campaigns related to radiation risks in different societal, cultural and political contexts. Two communication campaigns are studied: an administration of stable iodine tablets campaign in Belgium and a long-term radioactive waste disposal campaign in Slovenia. The level of specific knowledge was measured in target populations and compared with the specific knowledge in general populations. In addition, a perception of different radiation risks is compared between the groups and the countries. The results show, that although enhancing the specific knowledge in the communication campaigns remains an important objective, the campaigns shouldn't be the only focused on the general knowledge related to radiation risks. Long term programs, such as involvement of basic radiation issues in the education system, would be highly recommended. Finally, this research confirms, that the general level of knowledge related to radiation is rather low in both countries, thus limited communication campaigns are not enough to support people to make informed decisions related to a radiation risks.",
