CfP: ESA Risk and Uncertainty Research Network 22, Mid-term conference Risk, Uncertainty and Transition, University of Stuttgart, Germany, 8-10 April 2015

We aim to stimulate sociological and interdisciplinary research and debate into how risk and uncertainty are perceived, constructed, managed and/or neglected by social actors – individuals and organisations – as well as the impact of these responses in society. Although the event will have a more specific focus on the theme of transition, this is an open call for papers, which explore aspects of risk and uncertainty across a broad range of sociological and interdisciplinary perspectives.
