The Centre for Risk Studies provides frameworks for recognising, assessing and managing the impacts of systemic threats. The research programme is concerned with catastrophes and how their impacts ripple across an increasingly connected world with consequent effects on the international economy, financial markets, firms in the financial sectors and global corporations. To test our research outputs and guide our research agenda, the Centre engages with the business community, government policy makers, regulators and industry bodies.
