Abstract
In this paper some findings from a pilot study regarding the use of risk- and vulnerability analysis in society's management of extreme events is presented. The study consisted of two major parts.

The second part, tightly connected to the interview study, was based on literature studies and generated a more general overview of existing risk- and crisis management strategies, risk- and vulnerability analysis methods etc., covering a wide range of government agency areas/sectors. The pilot study was the "starting point" for a long... (More)
