Thesis notes Thesis (PhD )-- School of Historical and Philosophical Studies 2018
Summary This thesis presents a novel analytic to studying the organisation of emergency and environmental management, namely by way of risk and its practices. It critically examines, situates, and problematises the concept of risk. Diagnosing a set of new risk practices and technologies, it argues that the way risk is done today has reconfigured the State and its territories. The thesis explains how risk and organisation can now put into question the notions of truth, deliberation, and expertise.
