The Institute of East Asian Studies is co-organizer of the first Asia-Europe Forum on Methods and Perspectives of Risk Analysis, to be held at the City University of Hong Kong on 17-18 November 2011. The event shall serve as a venue to exchange views and approaches on risk analysis among East Asian and European scholars as well as representatives from public authorities and NPOs. The financial crisis of 2008/09 or the recent triple disaster in Japan have made such an exchange of ideas and views ever more timely. Paper proposals are invited until 1 July; accepted presenters will be offered complimentary accomodation and a contribution to the travel costs. See the enclosed call for papers for more details.

Culture as a factor for systematic decision making for every single person is still far away to gain a foothold in economical theory. Classic economical models are not flexible enough to discuss the factor culture in human behavior.
An experimental approach might be a good way to explore cultural parameter, their changing dynamics and their influence on economics. But while this methodology has established itself in the western world, it is still in the early stages of development in East Asia.
This workshop wants to support this approach and will present several lectures concerning this topic.
