With their paper on Environmental Risk Perception Carmen Tanner and Gisela Böhm put the profound question as to how people perceive environmental risks and what opposing actions can thus be triggered. They address not only heuristics and cognitive biases but also present a psychometric model to identify key characteristics of risk that underlie risk perception. In so doing they focus on values and moral dimensions. In addition, they examine the emotions resulting from perceived risk and also shape risk perception. A part of their paper constitutes a chapter of the book “Environmental Psychology” - 2019/02/20 SP - T1 - Böhm & Tanner_Chapter in Environmental Psychology, ER - BPS textbooks in psychology. Environmental psychology: An introduction (pp. 15-25). : BPS Blackwell), that is in its 2nd edition.
In view of much-publicised business scandals like the Enron collapse, the Libor scandal, the global financial crisis and the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal ethics strategies and approaches to compliance are being redefined both in management and in academia.
With a focus on organisational culture and classic compliance and integrity aproaches, PhD candidate Diana Stimmler and Professor Carmen Tanner are developing a psychological model based on the idea of a regulatory focus theory to address this key business and societal problem. Their mutual work forms a chapter of the book Agenda for Economic Psychology edited by Katharina Gangl, University of Göttingen, Germany and Erich Kirchler, University of Vienna, Austria with EE Edward Elgar publishing.
