    Abstract

    During recent years, ICRP proposed fundamental changes in its radiation protection approach. The ICRP evolution is analysed in this book from different standpoints. All of these approaches take into account the context of justification and intergenerational ethics. The authors express concern for a degradation of a unique system of protection based on the precautionary ALARA principle.
