    Article - En anglais

    Risk analysis is an instrument for the decision-making process.

    Three possible applications are described :

    • methods used for a (first)'quick and dirty'analysis ;

    • the question of unacceptable risks ;

    • and aspects related to decision-making under risk and uncertainty.

    These applications have advantages and disadvantages, and sometimes their own specific pitfalls.
