ABSTRACT

 

Seismic risk is a global policy problem that threatens 36 nations of the world directly, and many more through the cascading consequences from serious disruptions of social, technical, and economic functions that are vital to continuing national and international development. The study uses a theoretical framework of complex adaptive systems (CAS) in a comparative analysis of response systems following twelve earthquakes that occurred in nine countries over sixteen years, 1999 – 2015.  The study investigates how advances in information technologies have enabled some communities to anticipate seismic risk and manage response and recovery operations more effectively, while other communities have missed opportunities and endured heavy losses.  It further explores potential directions for collective learning and action to address seismic risk on a global scale.

Behavior and Data Science Lab (BDS Lab)

At Tsinghua University School of Public Policy and Management, we have a new lab named Behavior and Data Science Lab (BDL) which has been established together with a leading Chinese applied psychology company Beijing Brightease Technology Development Co., Ltd in 2017. The BDL aims to develop analytical methods tailored to the public administration research and practice. BDL has hired postdoc researchers and research assistants in our current research project and is initiating education programs and MPA/IMPA tracks on big data and behavioral analytics at our School of Public Policy and Management. Potentially, the students graduated from our programs can apply these spirts and analytical technique into their working practice in a short term, which is expected to improve public service and the social welfare. The BDL is also planning an international conference, which aims to bring together experts/ researchers on big data and behavior analytics and public administration to explore the future opportunities of application in public service delivery and public management practice.
