The Risk Communication Specialty Group (RCSG) focuses on the communication of risk information between technical and lay audiences and is open to all members of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA). Our membership represents a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives on risk communication. Members' interest areas include the perception of risk, public participation, mass media coverage of risk, trust and credibility, social influence, and evaluation related to risk -communication activities. The purpose of the group is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge among practitioners, researchers, scholars, teachers, students, and others to encourage collaborative research, provide leadership, build scholarship, and play an active role in advancing the field of risk communication.
SRA also maintains a LinkedIn group page to facilitate discussion about all aspects of risk, including risk communication. Please click the icon on the left to access SRA's LinkedIn webpage.
