The Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience operates through a growing array of research projects and externally-funded fellowships. It is involved in policy engagement in risk and hazard debates across much of the globe, strategy development with industry and wider stakeholders as well as research consultancy. Our research aims to improve human responses to both age-old environmental hazards as well as the new and uncertain risks of climate change, surveillance, terror, banking and emerging technologies. It also focuses particularly on the nature of hazard, risk and vulnerability in the developing world.
The Institute is developing new ideas, fresh thinking and innovation across appropriate disciplines with regard to hazard and risk. By adopting an approach which directly engages policymakers, local communities and other appropriate stakeholders in the co-production of knowledge, the Institute will contribute to the development of innovative policy and to increasing social capacity for reducing vulnerability and harm.
