he International Sociological Association (ISA) is a non-profit association for scientific purposes in the field of sociology and social sciences.

The ISA was founded in 1949 under the auspices of UNESCO. The goal of the ISA, is to represent sociologists everywhere, regardless of their school of thought, scientific approaches or ideological opinion, and to advance sociological knowledge throughout the world. Its members come from 167 countries.

The on-going scientific activities of the ISA are decentralised in Research Committees, Working Groups and Thematic Groups, each dealing with a well recognized specialty in sociology. These groups bring together scholars who wish to pursue comparative research on a transnational basis and they constitute basic networks of scientific research, intellectual debate and professional exchange.

Thematic group 4 (TG04), Sociology of Risk and Uncertainty, was established in 2006. The central objective of the thematic group is to establish a sustainable discourse on risk and uncertainty in order to support theoretical developments as well as transnational empirical research.
