Synopsis: Modern societies have been termed risk societies. Western culture obviously is unable to cope with too much uncertainty. Risk management has become a paradigm for good governance and prudent policies. Further sociological analysis reveals that those who stand in for the fight against risks often turn out to be the ones who cause them. We therefore not only need to rethink our concepts of accountability; we also need to sharpen our political tools of defence against imminent threats.
