RISK GOVERNANCE: COPING WITH UNCERTAINTY IN A COMPLEX WORLD

By O RENN

PUB: EARTHSCAN 2008

IN **AS NEW** CONDITION – BEEN IN STORAGE

The book brings together and updates the well-known work of risk theorist and researcher Ortwin Renn, integrating concepts of risk in the social, engineering and natural sciences.

Risk Governance presents the context of risk handling before proceeding through the core topics of assessment, evaluation, perception, management and communication.

The main focus is on systemic risks, such as genetically modified organisms, which have a high degree of complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity, and with major repercussions on financial, economic, and social impact areas.

Risk Governance is a tour de force. Every risk manager, every risk analyst, every risk researcher must read this book - it is the demarcation point for all further advances in risk policy and risk research.

Renn provides authoritative guidance on how to manage risks based on a definitive synthesis of the research literature.

The skill with which he builds practical recommendations from solid science is unprecedented.

Review
'The volume's major strength is its excellent knowledge about and critical evaluation of the classical fields within risk research; risk analysis, risk perception, risk evaluation, risk management and risk communication. Within these fields, there are few researchers that can match Renn's competence.'

'An impressive work almost with the character of an encyclopaedia of recent discussions within the broad, complex and heterogeneous field of risk research. Throughout, novices as well as experienced risk researchers get the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the risk field and of societal efforts towards managing these complexities called risk.'
