Abstract


  • The paper reports on the World Social Science (WSS)

    Fellows seminar on Risk Interpretation and Action (RIA),

    undertaken in New Zealand in December, 2013. This

    seminar was coordinated by the WSS Fellows program of

    the International Social Science Council (ISSC), the RIA

    working group of the Integrated Research on Disaster

    Risk (IRDR) program, the IRDR International Center of

    Excellence Taipei, the International START Secretariat

    and the Royal Society of New Zealand. Twenty-five

    early career researchers from around the world were

    selected to review the RIA framework under the theme

    of ‘decision-making under conditions of uncertainty’, and

    develop novel theoretical approaches to respond to and

    improve this framework. Six working groups emerged

    during the seminar: 1. the assessment of water-related

    risks in megacities; 2. rethinking risk communication;

    3. the embodiment of uncertainty; 4. communication

    in resettlement and reconstruction phases; 5. the

    integration of indigenous knowledge in disaster risk

    reduction; and 6. multi-scale policy implementation for

    natural hazard risk reduction. This article documents

    the seminar and initial outcomes from the six groups

    organized; and concludes with the collective views of

    the participants on the RIA framework.
