BBC Radio 4: Do we need to learn to live with more risk?

Claire joins host Anne McElvoy alongside other guest ex-Justice Secretary David Gauke, to debate whether we need to learn to live with more risk.

As risk takes on greater significance within Government, Claire argues that we need to view risk as a core component of freedom as it is embedded in all the decisions we make. Removing risk removes our autonomy to make decisions, which in turn leads to less freedom, and if we want a free society we must learn to live with risk.

She also reminds the audience that risk is part of human-centred change and progress. It requires a leap of imagination and can be disruptive and potentially scary, but only by navigating these things can we move forward, otherwise we risk falling into stasis.
