 Politics and Science  
Dr. Nataliya Mironova is a prominent leader in the human rights and anti-nuclear environmental movements in Russia. She founded the Movement for Nuclear Safety and was one of the first organizers to press for government openness on pre-Chernobyl nuclear catastrophes. Through her work in regional Parliament, she made public information on the 500,000 victims affected by the activities of the first plutonium production in Russia and on the catastrophes in the Mayak plutonium production plant, including a 1957 radioactive waste explosion that contaminated a vast region with hazardous radioactivity. As a Member of the Supreme Environmental Council of the Russian State Parliament from 1997-2006, she organized broad public discussions for federal referendums on radioactive waste issues. In 2002, Nataliya won in the Supreme Court case against the Government of Russia to stop the import of 370 tons of Hungarian high-level radioactive waste for storage and reprocessing (plutonium extraction) in Russia. An author of several books and over 70 articles, she has examined the roots of nuclear weapons proliferation and the role of non-governmental organizations in abolishing Weapons of Mass Destruction, particularly nuclear weaponry. She advocates for public participation in governance to promote environmental justice and human rights.
