Journal Editors: Matthias Beck

Journal Description:
During recent years, news headlines have been rife with criticisms of the risk management practices of public and private sector entities. These criticisms have often been accompanied by calls for greater transparency in the way government entities manage risks and communicate dangers to the public. Similarly, in the private sector, the internationalisation of economic activity has heightened concerns over the potential adverse implications of mismanagement and financial scandals, and has led to calls for greater regulation and supervision. While the responses of public sector agencies and private sector actors to these challenges have differed, they share a common acknowledgement that effective governance relies on the pro-active identification, assessment, and management of risks as well as appropriate regulatory frameworks.

Journal of Risk and Governance is a new interdisciplinary peer-refereed publication that focuses on the intersection of risk and governance research in its broadest sense. The focal point of this Journal is on the growing body of research that views risk management not as a discrete expert activity, but rather as an integral part of socio-economic governance. In adopting this focus, JRG places a key emphasis on the historical, conceptual, cultural, societal, and economic contexts in which risk management and regulation take place. In terms of substantive areas, JRG invites contributions in a broad range of fields including business, economics, finance, sociology, public policy, health, and environmental studies, provided that these contributions address aspects of risk regulation or governance.

Within this broad disciplinary matrix, the Journal seeks to further the understanding of:

- how corporate and government entities (central, state, local government units and agencies) respond to, manage, and seek to prevent disasters and crises;

- how these entities regulate and control risks;

- how risks, disasters, and crises affect these institutions in terms of their institutional make-up, resourcing, and strategic outlook; and

- how corporate and government entities respond to regulatory demands.
