Risk Management is a research programme set up by The Geneva Association, also known as the International Association for the Study of Insurance Economics. The focus of this programme is manifold and address the following issues: fostering the use of the tools of risk assessment and risk management in new fields of application such as policy making; providing a platform between the insurance community, the engineering and academic communities and policy makers to discuss risk issues; promoting the concept of the insurability of risks as the natural borderline between State legislation and the market economy; identifying new opportunities for insurers in the emerging sustainability concept in order to enlarge the field of insurable risks.[1]

Selected Key Issues[edit]

  • How can insurance cope with a more complex and demanding risk scenario?
  • What is the new risk environment that has been created in recent years?
  • What about technologies being a new source of vulnerability?
