Most societies have become highly preoccupied with the notion of risk. The interest of public institutions and academia in risk communication has considerably grown during the last five years. Accordingly, risk communication has become a popular topic in the literature. Although originally conceptualized as a follow-up of risk perception studies, the work on risk communication has surpassed the limited boundaries of giving public relation advice for information programs on risk and extended its focus on the flow of information between subsystems of society (Jasanoff 1987, p. 116; Zimmermann 1987, p. 131; Kasperson 1986, p. 275).
