Epistemic risks: challenges in assessment and decision making

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearch

    Abstract

    The wide acceptance of risk analysis methods and their application may give the impression that the field is mature and that a change of approach is not needed. Nevertheless, the recent trends of debates in the risk community indicate that the basics of risk management become questioned. There are calls to revisions ranging from the definition of risk and stretching to the use of risk analysis results in decision making.
    The talk will centre in answering the following questions: Why conventional approach to risk analysis is challenged? What are alternatives? How to operationalise the inclusion of epistemic uncertainty in risk analysis? How to make decisions based on risk analysis results?
