At the time of writing this Call-for-Papers most of us are sitting at home in our home offices undertaking research projects and teaching our students with online tools. All stakeholders have had to adapt quickly and had to master changes which sometimes happened on a weekly basis. The global dimension of this pandemic and the fight undertaken by the different actors have evolved nearly in real-time given the global media coverage. While this pandemic came within days and weeks around the globe, another change is more subtle and even more hidden to direct human perception except those who are affected directly at the moment by the change of the climate in different regions.
From both developments we can see how the gathering of data, its transformation into information and the development of knowledge as well as the discussions about the ‘right’ actions are difficult processes with several iterations and setbacks on very different levels in society. From individual behavior towards organizational behavior national and international or global behaviors, all levels are interwoven and interdependent. Finally, this crisis shows us the risks we face as individuals, as organizations and as society if we don’t have the right information and knowledge or we don’t believe the information and knowledge provided by authorities and other stakeholders.
Therefore, the overall theme of the 17th edition of the ICKM conference will be on “Knowledge and Risks: From individual to global scale” at different levels of analysis and agency.
