About IRGC

The International Risk Governance Council (IRGC) is an independent non-profit foundation that aims to improve the understanding and management of risks and opportunities by providing insight into systemic risks that have impacts on human health and safety, the environment, the economy and society at large.

As a science-based think tank and neutral collaborative platform with multidisciplinary expertise, IRGC’s mission includes developing concepts of risk governance, anticipating major risk issues, and providing risk governance policy advice for key decision-makers.

Drawing upon international scientific knowledge from both the public and private sector, IRGC brings attention to ignored, neglected and emerging issues, and helps build bridges between science and policy in today’s challenging governance environment.

In this section, you can learn more about IRGC’s Mission & Purpose, how we strategically approach work on risk governance, our history, and how IRGC is governed and organised.
