Description: From a June-July 1997 workshop at Oxford, England, environmental sociologists look at the processes by which official experts and the general population come up with very different decisions about risk in such areas as nuclear power, genetic testing, food safety, and biodiversity. They explore the role of increasing individualization, emerging new social movements, and the declining public trust in public institutions. They hope to demonstrate the practical value of both the empirical American and theoretical European schools of the new discipline.
