Trust is an important factor in risk management, affecting judgements of risk and benefit, technology acceptance and other forms of cooperation. In this book the world's leading risk researchers explore all aspects of trust as it relates to risk management and communication. Drawing on a wide variety of disciplinary approaches and empirical case studies (on topics such as mobile phone technology, well-known food accidents and crises, wetland management, smallpox vaccination, cooperative risk management of US forests and the disposal of the Brent Spar oil drilling platform), this is the most thorough and up-to-date examination of trust in all its forms and complexities.The book integrates diverse research traditions and provides new insights into the phenomenon of trust. Factors that lead to the establishment and erosion of trust are identified. Insightful analyses are provided for researchers and students of environmental and social science and professionals engaged in risk management and communication in both public and private sectors.Related titlesThe Tolerability of Risk (2007) 978-1-84407-398-6

?A thought-provoking and invaluable book for anyone who cares about risk communication and management in the 21st century?Anna Jung, Director General, European Food Information Council?Professor Ragnar L?fstedt has once again produced a most interesting book on risk management and trust, well-based on theory and built on empirical findings?Mikael Karlsson, President, Swedish Society for Nature Conservation?Highlights the difficult balancing task facing risk regulators. Regulatory inaction against real risks can undermine public trust. However, exaggerated responses to risks can also jeopardize regulators? credibility. The diverse international case studies developed by Ragnar L?fstedt provide guidance for how regulators can navigate these and other frequently competing concerns?W. Kip Viscusi, Cogan Professor of Law and Economics, Harvard University, USA?In democracies, government policies cannot succeed without public acceptance. Yet complex risk management requires technical expertise. How to reconcile these competing needs? Ragnar L?fstedt provocatively challenges recent research claiming that risk managers must engender public trust via deliberative dialogue. He uses four cases studies to argue that the reasons for distrust vary and demand different responses; that in some cases trust can flow from technical competence without public deliberation; and that in others public deliberation can actually aggravate distrust. Trust me: L?fstedt?s book will add spice to the debate over risk, experts, the public and trust?Jonathan B. Wiener, Perkins Professor of Law and Environmental Policy, Duke University, USAWe live in ?post-trust? societies, in which public confidence in governments and corporations over health, food and environmental risk is eroding rapidly. Good risk communication can help companies, governments and institutions minimize disputes, resolve issues and anticipate problems. Without such communication, the best policies can become derailed and trust can be lost. Most policy-makers still use outdated methods to communicate policies and achieve their objectives - methods developed before public trust in industry and government was affected by health scares such as BSE, genetically modified organisms and dioxins in Belgian chicken. This book provides effective methods for managing and communicating risk effectively in contemporary societies.

The introduction provides the ideal starting point for students and professionals new to risk studies and offers a concise refresher for researchers and practitioners. Coverage includes the origins of the concept of risk and its often misunderstood cousin uncertainty, before moving on to address risk perception, risk communication, the idea of trust and post-trust as well as risk in policy and regulation with a close look at the Precautionary Principle. Following the introduction, the volume includes a selection of the most significant and influential works on risk in their entirety. These selections, organized thematically to cover the breadth and depth of the field, provide greater detail and elaborate on the key themes and major developments in risk studies.

In seiner Soziologie des Risikos entwickelt Niklas Luhmann ein theoretisches Programm für die soziologische Forschung und geht davon aus, dass der Begriff des Risikos wesentliche Aspekte der Zukunftsbeschreibung der heutigen Gesellschaft in die Gegenwart projiziert. Risiko ist danach die Möglichkeit der Auflösung unerwarteter, unwahrscheinlicher schädlicher Folgen durch eine Entscheidung, die einem Entscheider zugerechnet werden kann. Die Prominenz des Themas Risiko hat es daher wesentlich mit der Annahme zu tun, dass unsere Zukunft von gegenwärtig zu treffenden Entscheidungen abhängt. Die einzelnen Kapitel des Buches zeigen, wie sehr und wie verschieden die Funktionssysteme der modernen Gesellschaft, wie Politik, Recht, Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft, auf die ihnen zugemuteten Risikolagen reagieren und wie sich daraufhin eine allgemeine Opposition derjenigen bildet, die an der Entscheidung nicht beteiligt sind, aber deren etwaige Folgen zu tragen haben.

Die klassische, industriegesellschaftliche Erste Moderne, die" Hochmoderne", unterschied trennscharf Kategorien von Menschen, Dingen und Tätigkeiten und traf Unterscheidungen zwischen Handlungssphären und Lebensformen. Heute gilt: Die Nebenfolgen radikalisierter Modernisierung stiften auf dem gesamten Globus das Bewußtsein neuer Weltprobleme. Diese Entgrenzung erzwingt Entscheidung: Je mehr Entgrenzung, desto mehr Entscheidungszwänge, desto mehr provisorisch-moralische Grenzkonstruktionen, Grenzpolitik. Alle Handelnden - Regierungen und politische Parteien, internationale Organisationen ebenso wie Arbeit und Kapital, Reiche und Arme, die Menschen verschiedenster Religionszugehörigkeiten und Hautfarben - müssen sich in diesem transnationalen Kraftfeld neu situieren: Lasten und Kosten verteilen, Ziele definieren, Wege finden, Koalitionen schmieden und Zukünfte einer gemeinsamen Welt imaginieren, woraus tiefgreifende Verwerfungen und Konflikte entstehen. Das zentrale Thema dieses Buches lautet dementsprechend: Wie wird die Politik der Grenze in der entgrenzten Moderne betrieben?
