New at HOORC's Library: transboundary risk governance

Environmental problems have increasingly been considered as transboundary matters, transcending borders between nation states as well as borders between experts and citizens. They are also increasingly been understood as risks, as complex and ambiguous phenomena associated with great uncertainty. Furthermore, traditional top-down ways of managing environmental problems are becoming more and more obsolete, as governance is seen as a more feasible and efficient way to handle transboundary risks, so the six million dollar question is: how can transboundary risks be made governable? You can find the book in the HOORC Library.
