Abstract
In recent years, major projects are increasingly becoming the source of social stability risk in China that induces mass incidents. Risk society changes evaluation criteria on major projects, and also changes the agenda setting of project decision-making. Social stability risk caused by major projects comes from interest groups’ social expectations of the project in terms of interests, safety and legality, and such social expectations directly lead to behaviors or behavioral tendencies related to social stability. Including analysis of social expectations into the social stability risk assessment framework helps objectively and comprehensively reflect the social effects arising from the project implementation, thus to prevent various types of social conflict events in a more reasonable and effective manner.
