What do financial crises, pandemic flu and climate change have in common? All involve policy decisions that rely to some extent on formal models to predict the future – and all their models have been criticised for not fully taking deeper uncertainties and public values into account. This symposium will focus on the relationship between formal analysis and policy making across a range of domains, including health, environment, finance and technology, bringing together junior researchers from across the social sciences and humanities to explore a set of shared problems and linked themes.
The symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for graduates to present their PhD research, discuss new ideas, and network with researchers who share interests in risk research in Cambridge and beyond. It precedes a major international conference, Challenging Models in the Face of Uncertainty.
