Abstract:

The discussion of “new risks” in social policy arena started to gain attention from the late 1990s. It is commonly argued that new risks are provoked by deindustrialization and/or globalization and a convergence theory on new risk is suggested that it is characterized to be more concentrated on the young, women and low skilled.
This study commences its inquiry with a scientific conceptualization of social risk with an ambitious attempt to critically rethink the argument of new risk or new crisis. A reification of the concept is followed by an empirical investigation on the question of whether there is a new risk and is there a convergence in the characteristics of new risk as the literature suggests. A lack of comparative empirical evidence of new risks in the existing literature calls for an investigation of advanced economies both from East and the West. 18 countries are selected in order to ground a comparative perspective in understanding the new risk and they are comparatively analyzed using the Fuzzy-set Qualitative Analysis method (fs/QCA) to measure the changes in degree. In sum, this chapter aims to answer two questions: 1) What is new risk? and 2) How do the characteristic of risks differ in different post-industrial countries? This study will contribute to the new risk discussion not only theoretically and empirically but also methodologically.
