Understanding risk and the perception of risk has recently become a major vehicle to discuss societal change, public policy options, and business as well as economic challenges both in Asia and in other parts of the world. Many of the risks relevant to contemporary societies are man-made; perceiving and managing such risks is therefore not independent from the social, political, economic and cultural environment. The consequences of this embeddedness for theory-based studies on risk as well as for public policy or business planning are little understood, as they are often implicit and intangible. Recent events like the triple disaster that struck Japan in March 2011, the global financial crisis of 2008, incipient global climate changes or the outbreak of SARS in China in 2003 dramatically underline the importance of learning more about attitudes towards risk and risk management in regional and cross-regional contexts.
The Asia-Europe Forum on Methods and Perspectives of Risk Analysis shall serve as a venue to approach these issues in the format of a dialogue on the sometimes hidden embeddedness of methods and perspectives of risk analysis. Asian and European scholars from a range of disciplines will meet to discuss their methods and perspectives, while the forum is also open to participants from other regions and seeks to engage practitioners of risk analysis and management working in public policy or business.
The Forum is organized by the Advanced Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Studies at City University of Hong Kong with support from the Institute of East Asian Studies (IN-EAST) of the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, in association with its Research Training Group on “Risk and East Asia”, and is sponsored by the Hong Kong Association of Risk Management and Safety.
