The Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) seeks to encourage dialogue between researchers and policy makers across the interdisciplinary area of risk. The topic of risk spans academic disciplines such as economics, finance, accounting, risk management and insurance, engineering, operations research, psychology, and even public health departments.
The tools and applications used across these sectors often different markedly. By fostering two-way communication between academics and practitioners, CEAR fosters rigorous debate over those differences, ultimately playing a key role in risk policy.
