Abstract

Understanding public risk perception is central to the effective communication and regulation of risk. As such, there is often considerable divergence between expert and lay perceptions of risk, which have proved challenging for effective risk communication strategies. Risk communication provides a means of addressing this divergence, while helping to ensure that policy objectives are achieved, and when carried out effectively, can lead to the smoother implementation of risk regulation. This study ?Relay Risk; Examining the Communications of Environmental Risk through a Case Study of Domestic Wastewater Treatment Systems in the Republic of Ireland? sets out to identify how to effectively communicate risk-based environmental regulation.
