Abstract

This article concerns responses to health risk concerns about electromagnetic emissions from mobile phone masts. The article draws particular attention to the differential patterns of state response in the UK, USA, Italy, Ireland and Australia. It concludes that precautionary government responses have played a role in the ‘social construction’ of risk perceptions.
