CEAR/MRIC Workshop VI: Behavioral Insurance

Posted On August 31, 2015

December 7, 2015 - December 8, 2015



Program  | Background Papers 


This workshop brings together researchers interested in the manner in which risk management and insurance can be understood with behavioral methods. Alternative theoretical models are welcome, although analyses that are disconnected from theory are not. We expect researchers from a variety of disciplines will find this workshop of interest, including economics, finance, risk management, insurance, accounting, and psychology. The workshop will consist of roughly ten plenary sessions in which speakers have an hour to present.

The keynote address will be given by Professor James Cox, the Noah Langdale Jr. Chair in Economics, Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, and Director of the Experimental Economics Center at Georgia State University.

This workshop is held joint with the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) and the Munich Risk and Insurance Center (MRIC), alternating from year to year between sunny Atlanta and sunny Munich. This is the 6th workshop in this series. This year's event will be held in Atlanta.


Glenn Harrison is the primary organizer of this workshop. He is the C.V. Starr Chair of Risk Management and Insurance at GSU, and Director of CEAR.


CEAR will provide travel support and cover local expenses for participants that are presenting papers or acting as discussants. The usual university guidelines apply, although we can provide extra nights of support for overseas visitors if needed.
