This very useful open access paper from New Zealand was published in June 2019, and reflects on how our approach to risk informs processes such as research ethics review (and related processes), as well as our policies, procedures and guidelines. A useful read for research ethics committee Chairs, ethics officers and support staff. We have included links to six related items.
This research paper presents findings from a broad scoping of the international academic literature on the use of risk governance and risk-based regulation. It addresses six themes: (1) the evolution of thinking about risk, risk governance and risk-based regulation, (2) examples of risk governance and risk-based regulation, (3) evidence of the performance of risk governance and risk-based regulation, and (4) the epistemic challenges and (5) ethical challenges that come with this approach to regulatory governance and practice.
