Risk commnunication for the future. Towards smart risk governance and safety management

Edition 1st
Description 175 p. 11 chapters
Abstract Risk communication is considered an essential pillar in safety and risk science. However, it has too often been reduced to a set of practices and how-to guidelines (Do’s and Don’ts) that have prevented this essential part of any safety and risk mitigation strategy from getting the attention that it requires. Offering a richer perspective on the topic, through a reflection on the underlying assumptions and intentions that are behind any attempt at “communicating” about risks and safety matters, was the ambition of a 3-day workshop held in April 2016 in the spectacular Abbaye of Sorèze, near Toulouse, France. The contributors, international researchers, and professionals in many disciplines and domains were brought together by the NeTWork1 think tank. It is a tradition of NeTWork to foster relationships and understanding between academics and practitioners. This book is yet another example of the benefit that such dialogue can bring to the public arena. The conversation is just started and we wish to continue to wrestle with risk communication challenges and safety management requirements in the future.
