Risk and uncertainty affect all human activities, bear on all decisions and shape our everyday experience. In the managerial field the attention devoted to risks of all types and to risk management has been increasing steadily ever since the seventies due to the heightened volatility of the macroeconomic and financial environment, the enhanced speed of transactions and the deep systemic interconnectedness of national economies. Both practitioners and academic researchers devote significant time and effort on improving their knowledge, skills and understanding of risk evaluation and management. Following the wave of this strenuous effort, in these two volumes we collected a selection of research papers presented during the Second International Conference on Risk Management organized at the University of Torino on the 25-26 October 2018. The ambition of the event was to bring together many different perspectives on risk management, without confining the scope to a particular sector, activity or issue. The result of this opening was brilliant. Plenty of contributions were selected by the Conference organizers and rich discussions developed in numerous parallel sessions. The best papers – chosen on the basis of a blind peer-review process – were invited to take part in this publication which is subdivided into two volumes. This first volume has a public management focus, whereas the second is more related to issues faced by companies, intermediaries and investors in the private sector. More in particular, the first volume is divided into three subsections. The first one deals with environmental risk management and it is aimed at analysing the management of the environmental risks under different perspectives and the scientific, managerial and physical tools able to cope with them. The second subsection is focused on risk management in the public and health sector. Two drivers that are particularly analysed in this area are the dangers related to corruption in the public sector and the need to safeguard patients’ safety when organising health services. The third subsection deals with fiscal policies and discusses the interactions between the risk Management and tax law, both from a domestic and comparative perspective. The research focus is on the scheme commonly known as “Co-operative Compliance procedure” and on the consequences that it may have on the internal structure of multinational businesses.
