Global Risk Assessment: The Search for a Common Methodology
A lecture Presented by Leslie W. Kennedy, Professor, School of Criminal Justice, Rutgers Newark
Monday, November 15th, at 4:30 P.M. with a reception to follow
At the Alexander Library 4th Floor Lecture Hall
There have been many efforts in the past to confront the uncertainties of future threats and catastrophes that emerge in public health, in the aftermath of disasters, in controlling crime and terrorism and in protecting our material well-being. Kennedy’s talk will examine the framework for the study of threats, use cases from terrorism, health, and disasters to show how relevant agencies have addressed these problems through a risk perspective, and discuss the merits of a common methodology for risk assessment.
Global Risk Assessment is the third of six lectures in the Emergent Opportunities and Threats: The Rutgers Dialogue on Global Issues Lecture Series, a joint initiative between the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers New Brunswick and the Division of Global Affairs at Rutgers Newark.
We hope you will join us for this lecture and the rest of the series!
