Risk assessment and decision-making

I am currently undertaking research for a book that will review
developments in areas of risk assessment and conservation
decision-making since 1995. I have chosen that date because it was
the year I finished an earlier research project on risk methodology
in conservation, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The new book is due
to be published in 2005 and so I hope to be able to cover
approximately a decade of development.

I would like to make contact with anyone who has succeeded (or
failed) in making practical use of any of the ideas reviewed in my
first book, Risk Assessment for Object Conservation
(Butterworth-Hienemann,1999) or has practical experience of working
with the methodologies of Rob Waller or Stefan Michalski on whose
work I depended when writing it.

If you do have experience that demonstrates the practical
development of ideas about risk assessment or value-led
decision-making I would like to discuss this with you. The first
response need not be long and detailed, but I would like to follow
up interesting cases with more detailed correspondence and perhaps a
visit to see the practical outcomes.
