Abstract

This paper reviews the main approaches to risk in sociology and psychology. It shows that the former area is developing more constructivist accounts of risk perception and response, which the latter has recently focused more on individualist and subjectivist approaches. Opportunities are thus open for cross-fertilisation and also for a re-invigoration of the contribution of social accounts across the disciplines.
