Anglo-Dutch seminar on Risk Policies

On february 25th 2010 the Dutch programme “Government for the future” and the British Regulatory Policy Committee organized a seminar for top public servants about the developments of risk policies in both countries. The seminar was focused primarily on the (perceived) pressure of media and public which suggests that government has been granted greater responsibility in societal risk reduction. This has led to cost-ineffective risk policies and ever increasing regulatory pressure. Ira Helsloot was invited by the “Government for the future” programme to hold a presentation on the intractable citizen and his expectations of rational risk policies.
