International academic meeting "Performativity and governance of actuarial models"
The governance of actuarial models is a field not yet investigated by the social studies of finance but of growing importance for the future, in particular because of the prescription of financial models through international prudential regulation. The international meeting will focus on a set of important, related issues: 1. Financialisation and the changes in actuarial practices, 2. Conventions of quantification and the use of actuarial models, 3. The performativity issues as a challenge for the foundations of actuarial concepts, 4. Actuarial expertise and the governance of insurance
