All workshop proposals will be reviewed by the SRA Workshops Annual Meeting Committee. The committee will select up to 12 workshops to be offered.
Benjamin K. Sovacool, professor at Boston University, University of Sussex, and Aarhus University, joins the podcast to discuss his new research on climate geoengineering. Sovacool dives into the risk tradeoffs of carbon removal and solar radiation management. His research highlights different risks in the climate system, and the institutional, political, behavioral, social and cultural risks that accompany deployment of new technology. To close out the podcast, Sovacool shares the three policy implications from the study.
The purpose of this special issue is to stimulate and disseminate knowledge illustrating how COVID-19 challenges risk analysis at the fundamental level (e.g., by demanding answers when knowledge is still very incomplete, and perceptions differ widely) and/or advancing risk science knowledge related to such challenges; or demonstrating how the application of generic, foundational risk science knowledge can help to improve risk analysis practice related to COVID-19.
This special issue seeks submissions that report cutting-edge research on the rich possibilities of harnessing the tools of risk analysis toward the identification and mitigation of inequitable exposure to risk. We also welcome perspective papers discussing the scope of inequity in risk, knowledge gaps in understanding, and implications for policy.
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.
