This volume is intended to stimulate a change in the practice of decision support, advocating an interdisciplinary approach centred on both social and natural sciences, both theory and practice. It addresses the issue of analysis and management of uncertainty and risk in decision support corresponding to the aims of Integrated Assessment. A pluralistic method is necessary to account for legitimate plural interpretations of uncertainty and multiple risk perceptions. A wide range of methods and tools is presented to contribute to adequate and effective pluralistic uncertainty management and risk analysis in decision support endeavours. Special attention is given to the development of one such approach, the Pluralistic fRamework for Integrated uncertainty Management and risk Analysis (PRIMA), of which the practical value is explored in the context of the Environmental Outlooks produced by the Dutch Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM). Audience: This book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners whose work involves decision support, uncertainty management, risk analysis, environmental planning, and Integrated Assessment.

Das bisherige institutionell arrangierte Verhältnis von Sicherheit und Risiko ist angesichts der massiven Veränderungen der inneren, der sozialen und der äußeren Sicherheit in der Krise. Moderne Gesellschaften stehen vor der Frage, wie und in welchen Formen dieses Verhältnis neu bestimmt und auf soziale, rechtliche und politische Weise neu arrangiert werden kann. Der Fokus dieses Bandes zielt auf die Evaluierung politischer, sozialer und technischer Umgangsweisen mit Risiko sowie auf die Analyse der gesellschaftlichen Imaginationen, die mit diesen unweigerlich verknüpft sind.

Nicht erst in Zeiten raschen Wandels der natürlichen Lebensbedingungen, der allgemein als krisenhaft empfunden wird, wird Zukunft zum Problem: Menschliches Handeln im Umgang mit natürlichen Ökosystemen wird spätestens seit der Moderne unter dem Aspekt von zahlreichen Unsicherheiten und Risiken gesehen. Die Häufigkeit und Dringlichkeit, mit der Begriffe wie „Nachhaltigkeit“ oder „Zukunftsfähigkeit“ in gesellschaftlichen Debatten verwendet werden, markiert offenbar die Sehnsucht danach, über verlässliche Handlungsvorgaben und Richtlinien im Umgang mit natürlichen Ressourcen zu verfügen, die Umweltprobleme und -risiken verhindern bzw. reduzieren helfen. In diesem Sammelband wird die Frage untersucht, wie damit in konkreten Entscheidungszusammenhängen umgegangen wird.

Uncertain Risks Regulated compares various models of risk regulation in order to understand how these systems shape the relationship between law and science, and how they attempt to overcome public distrust in science-based decision-making. The book contributes to the ongoing debate relating to uncertainty and risks - and the difficulties faced by the European Union in particular - in regulating theses issues, taking account of both national and international constraints. The term 'uncertain risk' is comparable with notions of hazard and indeterminate risk, as deployed within the social sciences; but it also aims to capture the modern regulatory reality that a non-quantifiable hazard must still be addressed by society, law and its regulators. Decisions must be taken in the face of uncertainty. And, whilst it is not possible to provide clear cut models of risk regulation, in focusing on regulatory practices at a national, EU and international level, the contributors to this volume aim to use fact finding as a core instrument of learning for risk regulation.
