This volume addresses a range of issues pertaining to the presence of risk in environmental policy. Topics covered include individual perceptions of risk, the valuation of environmental risks, the reporting and discussion of risks in the media, alternative government roles in addressing environmental risks, and examples of several public policy issues involving risks - biotechnology, hazardous waste facilities, and occupational hazards. These issues are viewed in the context of collective perceptions of entitlements that determine individual and group exposures to environmental risks. The book includes contributions from scholars in the field of risk and uncertainty across a number of disciplines including decision sciences, psychology, environmental economics and risk and uncertainty.
