Launch of Risk&Regulation online

The ESRC Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) today launched its popular Risk&Regulation magazine in a new online format.

Readers can now easily access the latest research findings and news from CARR, with the added benefits of increased interactivity. The articles, by leading scholars and practitioners, contain links to other relevant items, events and publications produced by CARR.

The latest edition features articles exploring issues such as

  • how 'health and safety' is being used increasingly as an excuse for all sorts of changes that constrict freedom, by Frances Cairncross, chair of the ESRC
  • the risk management of everything and the escalating transference of risk from organisations to the general public in the editorial by Professors Mike Power and Bridget Hutter
  • how modernisation and partnership were put into practice following the government's call to modernise public services
  • the effects of terrorism and September 11th on catastrophic risk insurance
  • and, as the government launches its White Paper, a forum on the future of rail.

It is hoped that this new online initiative will lead to developing discourse within the fledgling field of risk and regulation studies in the UK and the rest of the world.
