Applying a gender perspective in risk and societal safety: On the search for nuances and new knowledge

Kristin S. Scharffscher, The University of Stavanger, Norway Jacob Taarup-Esbensen, University College Copenhagen, Denmark

The European Commission encourages all its funded research projects to apply a gender perspective wherever relevant. The anticipation is that an integrated gender dimension will help “improve the scientific quality and societal relevance of the produced knowledge, technology and/or innovation” (European Commission, 2019). Disasters, for instance, “are social and political events that are linked to who we are, how we live, and how we structure and maintain our society” (Fothergill, 1996: 33). Yet, very little research has incorporated whether and how men and women experience and handle disasters differently, nor the

theoretical and practical consequences gendered differences may entail. We have conducted a literature review to establish how and to what extent a gender perspective has been

implemented in existing research on organising risk and societal safety. We have also

attempted to capture how gender perspectives can generate better insights and new knowledge within risk and societal safety research. Applying gender and risk search criteria within high- ranked journals in the field, we have identified 297 possible relevant articles published in high-ranked peer-reviewed journals between 1994 and 2019. Each article has been

categorised and analysed in relation to the techno-scientific, the cognitive, the socio-cultural and the constructionist perspectives on risk. Our findings suggest that gender is addressed and/or applied in different ways within these four perspectives. A common denominator, however, is that marginal efforts have hitherto been made to understand the operationalisation of gender in research on risk and societal safety, and specifically how gender can be applied as a variable within the various theoretical analyses. Still an underused factor in terms of cohort composition, questions asked and data analysis, gender may indeed represent a blind side in our current understanding of risk and societal safety.
