Ragnar Löfstedt (Professor of Risk Management, Director, King’s Centre for Risk Management, Department of Geography, King’s College London) will give a conference on risk communication in the 21st century.
Ragnar E. Löfstedt is Professor of Risk Management and the Director of King’s Centre for Risk Management, King’s College London, UK where he teaches and conducts research on risk communication and management.
He has conducted research in risk communication and management in such areas as renewable energy policy, transboundary environmental issues (acid rain and nuclear power), health and safety, telecommunications, biosafety, pharmaceuticals, and the siting of building of incinerators, fuel policy, nuclear waste installations and railways. He is a believer in the building of public trust in regulators and industry via proactive risk communication and argues that high regulatory/industry trust is equivalent to low public perceived risk.
He was previously on the Academic Advisory Board of the UK National Patient Safety Agency, as well as a member of the European Food Safety Authority’s Advisory Group on Risk Communications. He has served as a senior advisor to the City of Vienna on risk communication and nuclear power and to the City of Gothenburg on climate change.
