Invitation only - please contact Jane Moorman if you are interested

The broad aim of the seminar is to explore, through individual presentations and group discussion, the significance of risk for various aspects of individual and institutional life: its origin in human or system behaviour, its exploitation or containment, and its broader consequences. We intend to analyse examples of risk-taking and/or -response in areas such as investment, data security (including identity theft), media response, and the psychology and science of risk. We have asked the speakers to talk about specific situations which will illustrate clearly different stages of the narrative of their particular example of risk.

Sir Howard Davies, Director of London School of Economics, has agreed to chair the event.

The speakers will be:

Professor Ross Anderson, Professor of Security Engineering, Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge – Data Security and associated risk Dr William (Bill) Janeway, Senior Advisor and former Vice-Chairman at Warburg Pincus, and Pembroke Alumnus – Investment Risk Ms Sarah Mukherjee, Environment Correspondent for the BBC - Media Response to Risk

Dr Luke Clark, Department of Experimental Psychology – Psychology and Neuroscience of Risk
