Information about Publication



Risk Society and Policy Research Center assembles outstanding scholars and experts from all universities in Taiwan. Its primary research foci are: The Economic, Energy and Social Transformation towards a Global Low-Carbon Society; Risk Governance on Food Safety; New Social Risk—Research on Quality of Social Living. RSPRC thus follows on the main research avenues of such prominent institutions as the European Food Safety Authority (EFA) and the Scientific Committee on Emerging and newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) from the EU and Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

 

RSPRC is dedicated to cross-disciplinary risk awareness in modern society and to develop precautionary risk culture. We spread risk knowledge promotion through various means: working papers, annual reports, brochures, and books, all combined with multimedia marketing channels. We aim to strengthen the communication of risk to different stakeholders (viz. government officials, scholars and educators, business leaders and workers, media, and civil citizens).

Recently, RSPRC has collaborated with Taiwan Chapter of Society for Risk Analysis to hold a symposium in August 2014 to showcase our research results (in topics such as social cohesion, social inclusion, social empowerment, new social risks and technology, environmental risk). The center will hold another symposium in December 2014, and will also compile and publish the research results for the references for the general public.

Our types of publication
RSPRC regularly publishes ‘work reports’ and ‘annual risk assessment reports’ in an aim to aggregate the opinions of experts on their respective topics. By collating empirical evidence and discussion outcomes, RSPRC also publishes social initiatives and policy white papers to provide information to policy making. RSPRC also publishes brochures and books which summarizes the research findings by the center’s researchers.
