Abstract

Drawing on a study of floods in Lully, Geneva, the AA. describe the plural dimensions of flood risk and extend the conventional understanding of risk. They analyse the dynamics of risk beyond the immediate phenomenon, through time and space. The flooding in Lully can be seen as a focusing event (event that led to a shake-up of knowedge) and became an agent in the process of change
