As construction projects become more complex, the understanding of systematic risk management requires improvement not only in risk identification, analysis and allocation but also in the management of risk in a structured and a systematic way. This PhD research aims at understanding the Iranian stakeholders' (i.e. the client, the consultant and the main contractor) attitudes to systematic risk management by comparing it with their Swedish counterparts. It aims at exploring the barriers to the implementation of; systematic risk management process in infrastructure projects in Iran. The research focuses on the stakeholders' attitudes to systematic risk management from the feasibility study stage through to production in tunnelling (infrastructure) projects.Stakeholders on the selected tunnelling projects perceive and identify different risks on their projects. However, the Iranian client does not perceive any importance in managing risk systematically and in a structured way. The Iranian consultant perceives the importance of systematic risk management but it is not paid by the client to carry out risk management. The contractor has no experience in managing the risk associated with tunnelling and relies on the foreign consultant to propose solutions on how to deal with certain risks.
