The Paris Risk Group brings together social scientists working for or with organisations involved in risk assessment and management. Its overall goal is to promote the use of social sciences alongside more traditional scientific disciplines; eventually to reconsider traditional procedures of risk assessment in order to integrate a wider range of evidence, including the social sciences. Its purpose is to exchange experiences relative to the use of social sciences in the production of risk assessments, in the broader context of risk management, and to share methods and tools and experiences across organisations.
The Paris Risk Group operates as a network of representatives of different organisations and of social scientists, involved or interested in food safety, occupational health and safety, and environmental health. It has the following functions:
The founding members and the target group of the network are employees or representatives of public agencies or academics working with public agencies.
