The International Risk Governance Council (IRGC) is an independent non-profit foundation based in Switzerland, with mission to improve the management of emerging and systemic risks that have or could have impacts on human and environmental health, the economy and society, and overall sustainability.
As a science-based think tank and neutral collaborative platform, IRGC’s mission includes developing frameworks and guidelines for improving global governance of risk, identifying and making sense of emerging or systemic risk issues, and providing risk governance policy advice for decision-makers.
Drawing upon scientific knowledge from both the public and private sectors (inter-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder approach), IRGC brings attention to emerging, ignored or neglected issues, and helps build bridges between science and policy in today’s challenging governance environment.
Most of its current attention is on matters related to technology.
