This short commentary paper provides a critical, but supportive, discussion of the paper by Löfstedt and 6 (L&6). Three suggestions are made. First, that L&6 make certain unsatisfactory assumptions about the underlying problems faced by risk communication initiatives. Second, that one should not be too surprised about the lack of dissemination of risk communication knowledge across different substantive risk areas, given the diversity of the risk research and risk practice communities. Third, that L&6 present an agenda for risk communication that has perhaps not kept pace with some recent developments, in particular those concerning citizen engagement.
