CALL FOR PAPERS
It is widely agreed that it is unethical to impose unwanted nontrivial risks on others under a wide range of circumstances. In this one-day workshop, we will examine methods and strategies for managing risks in an ethically acceptable manner. Can quantitative risk-benefit analysis be applied to all types of risks, or are there societal domains in which other approaches are warranted? Is the precautionary principle a viable alternative to quantitative risk-benefit analysis? Under what conditions do risk impositions constitute rights-violations? The conference will bring together scholars from numerous disciplines, such as philosophy, law, history, health sciences, business, community preparedness and engineering, as well as experts from industry and business.

SUBMISSIONS
Please send an abstract of about 300 words to martinpeterson@tamu.edu  We expect to accept a relatively small number of abstracts, but we will cover reasonable travel expenses and lodging for all speakers.
