This quantity investigates the interdisciplinary and cross-cutting demanding situations within the possibility research of usual risks. It brings jointly best minds in engineering, technological know-how, philosophy, legislations, and the social sciences. components I and II of this quantity discover probability evaluate, first by means of offering an outline of the interdisciplinary interactions concerned about the review of average risks, after which through exploring the actual affects of weather swap on traditional risk evaluation. half III discusses the theoretical frameworks for the evaluate of common dangers. eventually, elements IV and V handle the chance administration of usual risks, delivering first an outline of the interdisciplinary interactions underlying typical risk administration, after which exploring selection frameworks which can aid choice makers combine and reply to the advanced relationships between ordinary occasions, the equipped atmosphere, and human behavior.

In response to the unequal and perhaps unfair distribution of risk, we can use political-philosophical principles and methods 32 M. Coeckelbergh (for example prioritarian or sufficitarian principles of justice3) to evaluate the creation and fair distribution of natural disaster risk. If there is a “politics” of risk—including “natural” risk—then political philosophy can help to deal with this aspect. For instance, one could argue that distribution of risk should be fair or equal, or that people should have the opportunity to participate in decisions about risk.

Flood risk is not merely embedded in Dutch culture and interpreted in a culturally specific way; it is culture, it is part of Dutch culture and Dutch identity. Another example is the cultural interpretation and construction of (people’s response to) tsunamis in Japan, or better since in line with what I said previously: “Japanese Tsunami culture”. Because of its location in the Pacific Ocean Japan has known many tsunamis in its history. Relatively recently, there was the Fukushima tsunami which led to a nuclear disaster.
