DCU Business School launches National Risk Assessment Survey 2023
Professor Caroline McMullan, Gavin D. Brown and Dr Ann Largey from Dublin City University Business School have launched a survey to capture public opinion about the national-level risks which we face on the island of Ireland
The project is led by the Department of Defence, and the results of this survey will help build a shared understanding of the challenges to be addressed and will feed into a cross-government process to quantify the key risks that Ireland faces in the coming three years.
First published in 2012, the National Risk Assessment provides an opportunity to identify and discuss significant risks that may arise for Ireland over the short, medium and long term. The last NRA was published in 2020.
Since its inception, the National Risk Assessment has provided an overview of national-level risks and has drawn attention, often at an early stage, to the importance of preparing for phenomena such as severe weather, pandemics, and disruption to critical infrastructure.
Speaking after the launch of the survey, Professor Caroline McMullan said:
“The Business and Society research group in DCU Business School has worked on the National Risk Assessment for more than a decade. For the first time, we are gathering data on the public perception of risk across the island of Ireland at the same time as completing focus groups with national experts in each area of risk. We encourage maximum public engagement with our survey to ensure we get data from all counties.”
