Risk as Feeling: New Perspectives on Risk Perception

Chair: Dr Adam Oliver - LSE Health and Social Care
Speaker: Dr Paul Slovic - Founder, Decision Research|

Dr. Slovic studies judgment and decision processes with an emphasis on decision making under conditions of risk. His work examines fundamental issues such as the influence of affect on judgments and decisions.

 

He also studies the factors that underlie perceptions of risk and attempts to assess the importance of these perceptions for the management of risk in society. His most recent research examines psychological factors contributing to apathy toward genocide.  For further information visit Dr. Slovic's website: www.decisionresearch.org|
