The international journal Risk Analysis has prepared a timely special issue for May 2021, “Global Systemic Risk and Resilience for Novel Coronavirus and COVID-19.” Featuring 11 papers written for this issue over the past year, the collection represents a sampling of insights and viewpoints from scholars across risk sciences and resilience analytics to guide decision-making and operations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What does vaccination development look like from a risk-based perspective? Seth Guikema, Ph.D., University of Michigan, talks with Ben Trump, a member of the Army Corps of Engineers, about the complex process of COVID-19 vaccine development. Between accounting for technical science perspectives, considering various forms of regulatory approval, and addressing risk assessment-based challenges, parsing through the process for COVID-19 emergency use vaccination efforts can seem arduous.

The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) is a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public- and private-sector organizations, and to society at a local, regional, national, or global level.
