Risk Research: Practices, Politics and Ethics offers acollection of essays, written by a wide variety of internationalresearchers in risk research, about what it means to do riskresearch, and about how – and with what effects – riskresearch is practiced, articulated and exploited.

This approach is based upon the core assumption that: to make adifference in the study of risk, we must move beyond what weusually do, challenging the core assumptions, scientific, economicand social, about how we study, frame, exploit and govern risk.Hence, through a series of essays, the book aims to challenge thecurrent ways in which risk-problems are approached and presented,both conceptually by academics and through the framings that areencoded in the technologies and socio-political and institutionalpractices used to manage risk.

In addressing these questions, the book does not attempt tooffer a model of how risk research 'should' be done. Rather, thebook provides, through illustration, a challenge to the ways inwhich risk research is framed as 'problem-solving.' The book'sultimate objective aims to increase critical debate betweendifferent disciplines, approaches, concepts and problems.
