Human life and activities are associated with risk, as risk is inherent in all forms of human existence and action. Risk is regarded as a phenomenological variable considering how people perceive it, especially during a crisis they experience. This paper discusses the characteristics of human behavior in a crisis, with an emphasis on hazard perception and risk assessment, for the purpose of understanding people’s decisions and adaptation before, during, and after a crisis. The discussion focuses on the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.



Special Issue: Active Ageing and Educational Gerontology--Call for Papers


Dear Colleagues

The World Health Organization designed educational gerontology as the foundation that supports the three key pillars of active ageing - namely, health, social participation and income security. Lifelong learning opportunities in later life enable older persons to age successfully, and remain socially relevant and engaged in society. The integration of lifelong learning into active ageing discourse functions to safeguard the right of persons to age positively since the potential role that learning might play in promoting quality of life in old age has long been recognized by academics and policy makers alike. Older adults’ participation in learning is independently and positively associated with social and psychological wellbeing, even among those typically classified as frail and/or vulnerable by allowing to strengthen their reserve capacities and remaining autonomous and fulfilled.
