1st HEC Paris Workshop on regulation

The recent Iceland volcanic ash crisis epitomizes the general problem of emergency response in a world of uncertain manufactured and natural risks. Indeed, this crisis is not the first or the only for such a problem to have occurred. It is one of a series of recent real or potential catastrophes – natural disasters, terrorism, pandemics – that have taken by surprise globalised firms and partly regulators. As such it provides the ground for a rich case study in the problem of emergency regulation and the questions that it raises should concern a wide variety of scholars, regulators and industry analysts whose normal areas of concern are far removed from aviation and volcanoes.

The 1st HEC Workshop on Regulation aims at conceptualising the response to the volcanic ash problem and uses that problem as a case in point to explore the general problem of emergency response in an environment where the lines between manufactured and natural risks are increasingly blurred.

This workshop will provide scholars (Phd students, post-docs, researchers and established professors), industry representatives (IATA, CANSO, AEA, ELFAA), policy-makers (EUROCONTROL, EU Commission, National authorities) and scientists (WMO, VAACs) with the chance to address some of these hard questions raised by an increasing number of threats and catastrophes.

Guided tour of the 'Economie Humaine' exhibition


  • Guided tour of the exhibition titled Economie Humaine, organized by Hélène Maslard, project manager at the Contemporary Art Space.
    This exhibition takes a look at the relationships artists have with the corporate world and, more broadly, with the economy.
    "But why this exhibition? To demonstrate that the economy is not absent from the concerns of many contemporary artists. To show how the artistic vision of the economy eventually “humanizes” it. By imitating it, by subverting it, by broadening its practices sometimes to an absurd extent, by making it a subject not of tension but of relaxation..." note Paul Ardenne, curator of the exhibition, and Barbara Polla, associate curator.
    Among the 22 artists who are contributing to this exhibition, some are world-renowned, such as Hervé Fischer, Lucy + Jorge, Conrad Bakker, and Burak Harikan.
    Sign-up is compulsory. NB: to make the exhibition more easily viewable, the number of visitors is limited.
