31The operational methods of the citizen jury were entrusted to the members of the jury themselves, depending on the intermediate state of both parties. The jury met for the first time on December 13, 2004 and held its fifth and final meeting on December 28. As the jury was not an arbitration commission, it focused exclusively on examining the relevance of the recycling plant project on the basis of the data and testimony provided by the parties and experts concerned.

We used the interview data to confirm the facts and contextualize the different perceptions of the different actors. In addition to these qualitative data, we used seven primary sources of empirical data to reconstruct important points of conflict in the conflict. These included the minutes of the citizens` jury of 16, 23 and 28 December 2004 (102, 97 and 53 pages each),  the public hearing of the jury on the food waste recycling plant (94 pages), recordings of the interview of the Ulsan Research Centre (95 pages) and press articles (9 Files).
