Thematic Programs

Environmental and Financial Risks in Market-oriented Societies


Program Theme

Life is full of risks, and, in recent decades, we have confronted an unprecedented scale of natural disasters, environmental problems and financial crises, which have had devastating effects on people’s lives. Therefore, risks are considered important research agendas among policymakers and researchers. Against this background, our program will identify environmental and financial risks, and study how people in market-oriented societies react to these risks and prepare for such uncertainty. We hope that this program will help minimize costs incurred from such unexpected events in the private sector. In order to conduct comprehensive analyses, we provide the first platform for initiating research collaboration between environmental and financial economists and sharing of research experiences around the world.
