Radiation risk, risk perception and social constructions. Workshop. Oslo (NOR), 1995/10/19.
Risks have become reflexive.
Modern risks are created by technologies, through the organisation of society, as well as in our mind's perception and communication.
Modem risks are neither determined by scientific-technological factors alone, nor mere social construction, nor arbitrary subjective perception.
The three sources of risk have been described and emphasised recently by the three sociologists Ulrich Beck, Anthony Giddens and Niklas Luhmann respectively.
A comprehensive concept of risk capable of explaining the public perception and avoiding misunderstandings between safety experts and lay people must, however, consider and combine elements from all three.
