New types of risk have three main qualities: 1. They are largely invisible and undetectable without science: climate change is an example here. 2. They are universal: […]
A little like the iconic red buses of yore, you wait a couple of years for a new batch of a-level sociology knowledge organisers and then two come along at once. Or a few days later at any rate. Bit like red buses when you come to think about it. Still, a gift horse is […]
