At the 23rd SRA-E conference organised by the European division of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) in June 2014, four founding CIP members from PM risk-crisis-change (Belgium) and Inconnect (The Netherlands) presented a symposium about the role of information analysis in effective risk and crisis communication strategies.
Chaired by Stijn Pieters, the symposium consisted of four presentations by Anne-Marie van het Erve, Tim Van Achte, Frank Vergeer and Dr. Hugo Marynissen, each discussing a critical factor of turning data and perceptions found in the outside world into effective risk and crisis communication strategies.
The titles of the four presentations were:
- The crisis communication work process and the role of information analysis
- The tasks and tools of the information analyst
- The link between information analysis and decision making
- Scientific challenges for information analysis in a crisis communication team
The presenters also appeared in the conference programme with three additional presentations:
- Dr. Hugo Marynissen: A constitutive view on risk communication in organisations managing high-risk processes: Towards a conceptual framework
- Stijn Pieters: The role of crisis communication exercises and the critical factors required for effective impact on learning
- Tim Van Achte: Effective crisis response strategies based on data analysis – Crisis communication work process developed for Belgian federal government (Poster)
