Abstract

Chernobyl - Ground Zero - Banda Aceh : shock waves originating from these disaster spots moved around the globe and in Western societies left behind a feeling of anxiety. Such a mood of a "World Risk Society" (Beck 2007) is based on the experience that in the past years scientific knowledge about specific risk factors has grown immensely, at the same time natural and technical disasters as well as terror attacks could not be preventedor mitigated. Under such circumstances living with risks will become a key question for the future of mankind. - (IfL)
