CIRIS - Governance, Risk and Communication

The CIRIS study group - Governance, Risk and Communication - involves an interdisciplinary core of research and critical reflection on the interactions between science, expertise, risk, communication and decision-making processes. This research group develops theoretical and empirical studies centered on four analytical axes: (i) Risks, uncertainties and crises; (ii) Production, circulation and usability of knowledge; (iii) Communication, discursive frameworks and information flows; (iv) Governance of science and technology.
