Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Social science
  • Epistemology

Ortwin Renn mostly deals with Risk management, Risk perception, Risk assessment, Public relations and Social psychology. His research integrates issues of Management process, Environmental resource management and Process management in his study of Risk management. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Risk perception, focusing on Applied psychology and, on occasion, Cultural studies.

The Risk assessment study combines topics in areas such as Risk analysis, Risk analysis, Actuarial science and Risk governance. In general Public relations, his work in Public participation is often linked to Risk communication linking many areas of study. Ortwin Renn combines subjects such as Preparedness, Cross-cultural, Perception and Action with his study of Social psychology.

His most cited work include:
