Abstract

Drawing on the conceptual distinction between risk and uncertainty, the authors examine the governance of shared risk in public sector partnerships in an area governed by uncertainty. Their case study of a local safeguarding children board (LSCB) reveals differences between risk and uncertainty and ways in which negotiations of LSCB partners’ different risk conceptualizations contributes to uncertainty reduction in children’s services. The article contributes to both to an understanding of risk and uncertainty management in the public sector and to that of public sector inter-organizational management accounting and control.
