Global Risk Regulation

by HEC Paris

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This unconventional and interdisciplinary course focuses on societies' efforts to assess and manage health, safety and environmental risks. As will be illustrated along our journey, any model of risk regulation has to come to terms with issues such as: selecting the risks deserving regulatory attention, feeding the best scientific advice into decision-making, deciding in situations of scientific uncertainty, defining the role of non-scientific values, ensuring an open and participative form of decision-making, calculating the costs and benefits of regulation as well as their distributional and equity effects. As a result, optimization tools, such as economic analysis and sound science, dominate the risk regulatory process across the industrialized world and are spreading also among developing countries today. Yet - although on the rise - neither sound science nor economic analysis are saved from criticism.
