Mark Thursday 3 March 2022 in your calendar! Together with our research group Disaster Resilience we are organizing a webinar entitled: ' The political dimensions of disasters and disaster management policies '.

Dr. Clara Egger will talk about how reserach projects shed new light on the the political dimensions of disasters and disasters management policies. Her work will be discussed by Hamed Seddighi Khavidak.

What are the political impacts of disasters and disaster management policies? How do political institutions, political culture and leadership influence the type of disaster management policies implemented at home and abroad? How can we ensure that emergency powers do not durably affect democratic governance and human rights? This seminar will present how two ongoing research projects focusing on the management of humanitarian crises by national NGOs in the Global South (NEWCOMERS) and on the response to the Covid-19 crisis in Europe (EXCEPTIUS) shed new light on the political dimensions of disasters and disasters management policies.
