Abstract
A study was performed to investigate whether the risk- and vulnerability assessments of Swedish central authorities fulfill its purposes stated in the legislation.

A content analysis of ten risk- and vulnerability assessments was performed as well as a participating observation at a workshop, where central authorities were developing consequences for their respective sectors in a given scenario. It is concluded from the results that the RVA:s alone cannot be considered to fulfill the purposes stated in the legislation, but depend on consequent workshops to fulfill the purposes. This is mainly due to poor representation... (More)
