Risk Governance Research Group at the University of Siegen
Faculty III - Economics, Business Informatics and Business Law at the University of Siegen is working intensively on the topic of Risk Governance and has launched a research project of the same name. In general terms, Risk Governance means the responsible management of risks, with societal sustainability requirements, such as combating climate change or effective banking supervision, playing an important role at the macro level and the management of business risks, especially financial risks, at the micro level.
Within the discipline of business administration, one focus of Risk Governance is on the banking sector, which per se is highly risky and which - as the recent financial market crisis has shown - can pose enormous risks to the economy and the real economy. However, it would be far too short-sighted to limit Risk Governance to the banking sector. Risk Governance also addresses related disciplines such as human resources and organizational management, law, psychology and, especially for monetary and economic policy issues, economics. In order to be able to look at Risk Governance from different perspectives, the research group should be interdisciplinary and reflect the complexity of Risk Governance.
