The 2014 International Crisis & Risk Communication (ICRC) Conference theme is The Human Element.

The theme for the 4th annual ICRC Conference calls our attention to the human factors that can cause crises, help mitigate incidents, create and manage communication before, during and after events. It also looks at the wide range of “audience variables” that affect comprehension, understanding and behavioral response to crisis and risk communication. Leading researchers and experienced professionals will address the best methods for managing a crisis. The ICRC Conference will benefit novices to seasoned veterans working in the areas of crisis and risk communication as it delves into the human and emotional sides of a crisis.
