The conclusion offers a summary and extension of the book’s key themes. It first outlines how lived relations to risk contribute to extant debates and interpretations of risk governance and security more broadly. It then turns to engage in detail with the book’s focus on data as an entity central to forms of governance, albeit one that still requires further conceptualisation. Following on from a discussion of data, the chapter then turns to argue that approaches to risk governance require sensitivity to the nuanced ways in which matters of time and temporality are ingratiated into its practice. As a look ahead, the conclusion’s final section seeks to pave the way for further debate by probing major political changes in which the regulatory efficacy of risk would seem to be lacking.
