The exponential growth of wireless telecommunications technology has resulted in a rise in the construction of cell sites. This development has been raising concern about potential health risks for decades. In his research, Bert de Graaff asks where citizens’ concerns about possible health effects come from and why some cell sites are hotly debated while others are constructed without raising a single complaint. He answers these questions using a longitudinal, mixed-method and multi-level analysis of the politics of, and citizens’ experiences of, this technology in the Netherlands and Southern California.
