Misplaced and misused fear

This event is the third part of a four part series: Governance and the power of fear.

The relationship between fear and regulation is not well understood. Fear may be misplaced – think of our outsized fear of sharks, or it may be misused – as when fears of terrorism are used to justify curtailing civil liberties and invading privacy. This panel examines how fear has been misused and misplaced to justify either regulation or inaction.
