This was the second of a series of World Congresses on Risk that are important, logical steps to further develop the field of risk analysis and its applications. In partnership with other professional societies and organizations, the Society for Risk Analysis launched the first of this series in 2003. The unifying theme for the Second World Congress is “Risk and Governance,” which reflects the worldwide trend toward making better use of risk-oriented concepts, tools, and processes (derived from both research and practice) in public decision-making and risk management.
