Special Issue "Risk Management Models with Applications to Economic, Social and Natural Environment Sustainability"
A special issue of Risks (ISSN 2227-9091).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: statistics; risk theory; information theory; operations research; risk measures; entropy measures; actuarial science; financial mathematics
Many recent studies have revealed the crucial contribution of risk analysis to mitigating the influence of uncertain negative events and enhancing sustainability in various fields. The aim of the present Special Issue is to provide a framework for the discussion and design of new statistical models and optimization techniques for risk assessment, forecasting and control. Special attention will be paid to modelling and simulating the behavior and evolution of complex systems under uncertainty by using statistical models, information measures, risk measures, inequality measures, stochastic processes, as well as data analysis, big data, machine learning and other computational techniques. In addition, applications of modern quantitative models to risk management in economic, social and natural environments would be highly appreciated. We will include the following research directions: risk management in finance and insurance, risk mitigation to achieve economic convergence and sustainable development, risk of poverty, economic inequality, risk of social exclusion, food security risk, longevity risk and environmental risk.
