Guidelines for Risk Communication
The main thrust of this book has been the case studies of risk communication from which readers can draw their own conclusions. A great deal of general advice on risk communication has already been published. Some of this advice may not be very effective, especially in terms of its applicability to all cultural situations and to Europe in particular, since much of it originates in the rather different context in North America, but it still has a potentially useful role.
