Beyond Skeptical Relativism: Evaluating the Social Constructions of Expert Risk Assessments.
van Zwanenberg, Patrick; Millstone, Erik
Science, Technology, and Human Values, v25 n3 p259-82 Sum 2000
Assumptions about the equal reliability of competing accounts of risk deserve to be examined empirically while the scope for interpretative flexibility when addressing risk issues is clearly extensive. Indicates that the U.K. evaluation was not only less precautionary than its U.S. equivalent but was also less well-constructed and therefore less reliable. (Contains 64 references.) (Author/YDS)
