  • The management of risk and crises is increasingly seen as a matter of mobilizing formal, rational and calculative systems. Still, the capacity to understand and evaluate the socialcontext within which risk and crises are embedded is of great importance. Examining the case ofthe outbreak of Marburg haemorrhagic fever in Angola in 2004—2005, the concept of trading zoneis proposed as a mechanism bridging international expertise (in this case, that of the medicalexperts of the World Health Organization) and the local actors’ (Angolan health care workers,elders, etc.) understandings of the needs and demands of the community. Recognizing that risksare by definition impossible to fully anticipate, management practice, as part of organizingshould emphasize not only rational systems for monitoring and controlling risk and crises, but alsothe value of including trading zones and a metacode as a pidgin that facilitates collaborationbetween heterogeneous groups in such zones, each understanding their reality based on local,cultural codes.
