On February 14th, 2014, we hosted the fourth in a series of five transatlantic workshops in the immersive online technology Second Life. We reported on the findings of our recent research on Canadian risk regulation regimes in the transportation and manufacturing (dangerous chemicals) sectors. The work draws on media analysis of post 9/11 CI events and semi-structured interviews with regulators, owners, operators and managers in the relevant sectors.
Links to the reports can be found below the agenda.
