Teaching at the Beijing Normal University

Our partner Pierre Mercier was invited to teach an international short course entitled Uncertainty, judgment and risk perception at Beijing Normal University (不确定性,判断和风险的看法) from April 20 to April 27, 2016. The objective of this course was to provide a review of the main concepts in the early scientific literature on uncertainty, to show the relation with the alternative concept of associative theory and its explanatory role in the understanding of contingency judgement, and finally to provide a linkage with some aspects of the research on risk perception. This provided an opportunity to showcase DPM’s expertise in behavioural research and in health.
