Abstract

The present article synthesizes a general approach to the development of risk governance decision support systems, based upon the interdisciplinary dialogue between risk science and the complexity sciences. A conceptual review of risk science and the three main schools of the complexity sciences (the Santa Fe School, the Stuttgart School and the Brussels-Austin School) is provided and addressed with regards to the new challenges faced by organizations in their need for adaptation to interconnected risk situations and the dynamics of risk in networks.

Keywords: risk governance, decision support systems, risk science, complexity sciences
