Risk Perception & Communication

Header image for Risk Perception and Communication

The interdisciplinary theme of Risk Perception and Communication is dedicated to advancing understanding of the dynamic relationships between public response, societal consequences, and risk and crisis communication in the event of a disaster. CREATE's research objectives in this theme are to formulate a better understanding of how the public perceives the risk associated with disaster events (both terror and non-terror), and assess the influence this has on their beliefs relative to these events, their notions of risk perceptions, and their behavioral decision-making, both in the immediate and in the long-term.
