    Sammanfattning : Kemikalier utgör en grundläggande beståndsdel av det senindustriella samhället, och en omfattande produktion av kemikalier brukar allmänt anses som en nödvändig förutsättning för teknisk utveckling och ekonomisk tillväxt. I Sverige ledde miljölarmen om DDT, PCB och kvicksilver på 1960- och 1970-talet till inrättandet av ett system för kemikaliekontroll som brukar framhållas som ett av världens främsta. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Risk and Rationality : Effects of contextual risk and cognitive dissonance on (sexual) incentives

    Sammanfattning : Paper [I] theoretically analyzes how the level and uncertainty of future prospects affect incentives to abstain from sexual risk taking in the presence of HIV. The results suggest that, for individuals with limited access to HIV treatment, uncertainty of future health may be an important factor driving unsafe sex practices and support the empirical finding of a weak link between sexual behavior, HIV prevalence, and HIV knowledge in poor countries; therefore suggesting that AIDS policy needs to be calibrated in order to fit within different social contexts.

  4. 4. Shaping Risk Management in Banks

    Författare :Vikash Kumar Sinha; Mats Engwall; Håkan Kullvén; Torkel Strömsten; Marika Arena; Andrea Mennicken; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; internal audit; risk management; risk culture; Basel models; operational risk; liquidity risk; internrevision; riskhantering; riskkultur; Baselmodellerna; operativ risk; likviditetsrisk; Industrial Economics and Management; Industriell ekonomi och organisation; Företagsekonomi; Business Studies;

    Sammanfattning : The recent financial crisis of 2007-08 was a watershed moment in the history of banking. The unprecedented event led to severe scrutiny by standard setters and regulators on how the business of banking is run. As a result of this strict scrutiny, a wide variety of reforms aimed at the second line of defense (risk management) ensued globally. LÄS MER
