Risk and Society

About the Risk and Society Research Domain

Exceeding its association with any specific hazard or peril, the concept of ‘risk’ is now central to the social theory and governance of late modernity.

Bringing together scientific expertise on various environmental hazards, such as floods, volcanoes, and water contamination, with work elsewhere across the Department and in the affiliated King’s Centre for Risk Management on risk perception and communication and on the governance and social theory of risk, this multidisciplinary research group has made major contributions to the development of risk both as a field of academic study and body of policy-relevant know-how.

The Group also supervise a thriving and dynamic PhD programme.  If you are interested in PhD study, please visit our PhD page for more information, including details of funding available for PhD study. Please visit our staff research interests page for academic staff research interests and teaching areas at a glance. Motivated and dynamic researchers are welcome to explore the possibility of joining us on a Fellowship or taking up visiting researcher positions.
