Innovation, Social Risks and Political Responsibility

Wednesday 14 May, 6.30pm
Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

Piero Bassetti will be looking at Innovation, Social Risks and Political Responsibility on Wednesday 14 May at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

As an industrialist, researcher and politician dedicated to the understanding of responsibility and innovation, Piero Bassetti will focus on risk and uncertainty associated with political, business and cultural change. In particular, he will analyse the decisions taken by the Allianz Insurance Company after the events of September 11, 2001 in New York, making specific reference to the future of tall buildings. He will also speculate on the impact of the introduction of genetically modified foods on policy-making and governance in Northern Italy.

Piero Bassetti is president of Alta Scuola di Economica e Relazioni Internazionali (ASERI), or Globus et Locus and of the Fondazione Giannino Bassetti. He is author of numerous political and economic studies, including Le Redini del Potere, Occidente Scomodo and Milanesi senza Milano.

This lecture, organised by the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation, the Cities Programme, and the Department of Information Systems, is free and open to all with no ticket required.
