Abstract [en]

Our modern society is exposed to multiple hazards and risks. In order to manage risks successfully, it is important to have a good overview of potential risks that our society is subject to and how they are perceived and valued. The aim of this paper is to investigate possible ways to map and analyse risks that the Swedish society and its inhabitants are exposed to and aware of. To achieve this, previous studies are mapped and critically assessed. The following questions have guided the work: What are the currently existing methods to describe risks on a broader societal level? What are the gaps of these currently existing methods, their advantages and disadvantages? What methods can be relevant for Sweden? The paper analyses previous studies including examples of methods, structure and visualization of data to map risk nationally or in larger regions. The paper concludes with recommendations applicable in Swedish context to prepare a national level risk mapping.
