Special issue: Futures of Research in Catastrophic and Existential Risk

15 August 2018

Our special issue Futures of Research in Catastrophic and Existential Risk has just been published.

The special issue, edited by Adrian Currie, brings together a wide range of research on existential and catastrophic risk. This research is increasingly multi-disciplinary and broad in scope. It considers how existential risk is conceptualized as well as challenges in communication, responsibility and epistemology. Many of the fifteen papers collected here were originally presented at our first Cambridge Conference on Catastrophic Risk in 2016.



Global Catastrophic Risks Broadly

Specific Risks and Interventions

Technology, Ethics and Governance

Law, Policy, Governance

The Conference, and a number of the publications in this issue, were made possible through the support of a grant from the Templeton World Charity Foundation (TWCF); the conference was also supported by a supplementary grant from the Future of Life Institute. The opinions expressed in this publication are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of Templeton World Charity Foundation or the Future of Life Institute.
