2021 Annual Meeting Call for Papers

The Annual Meeting of the American Risk and Insurance Association will be held virtually August 2-4, 2021. Papers presented at the annual meeting will mostly include those submitted by individuals. Session chairs are also invited to propose a full session based on a specific topic. By doing so the association encourages the broadest possible participation and the highest quality meeting.

Academicians, doctoral students, and other researchers are encouraged to submit a proposal to present their best research. Papers on any risk or insurance related topics are welcome. Specific subject areas include, but are not limited to, insurance economics, risk management, behavioral risk perception, law and regulation of insurance and risk transfer mechanisms, insurance accounting, insurance operations, corporate governance, health insurance and economics, public policy and financing of aging and retirement, etc.
