3rd International AGORAS Conference Governing risks beyond the “here” and “now” Gouverner les risques par-delà le temps et les frontières


Nantes. October 23-25, 2019


Following the 1st 2017 symposium and the 2nd international Conference “Lessons learned: Studying learning devices and processes in relation to technological accidents” organized in December 2018, this 3rd AGORAS Conference is intended above all to be a forum for exchange and dialogue between actors from the academic, industrial, institutional and political worlds, with different disciplines and affiliations, who are interested in risk governance, not limited to nuclear risks. It aims to enrich current reflections and efforts to improve risk governance practices through a hybridization of points of view, essential to provide concrete answers to the complex issues posed by risks and their governance.

For this 3rd International conference, we invite original papers, empirical or theoretical, in English or French, which address and analyze risk governance processes. Contributions adopting various perspectives are welcome however this conference aims more particularly at deepening two central issues for governing risks:

Beyond, around and within which boundaries is risk governance organized?
In which temporalities / time horizons is risk governance embedded?
