Overview

As part of the Debate Series on 'The Security and Defence of the United Kingdom', this event will discuss potential policy and organisational responses. In the first session, participants will look at private sector approaches to risk, examining different perceptions of risk as well as management styles, mitigation strategies and organisational responses. What can government learn from the private sector?

The second session will provide a more detailed assessment of the modalities and benefits of public-private partnerships in risk; looking at how government departments, industry and civil society can work together more effectively to mitigate and respond to risk. What are the obstacles to better risk management? And how can policy be adapted?

This event is held in collaboration with Ernst & Young.

Attendance is by invitation only.

This event was originally scheduled for 22 June 2010.
