The current global landscape governing disaster risk reduction (DRR) is in a significant period of evolution. In response to this, the University of Reading (School of Law and the Walker Institute) together with the ASIL Disaster Law Interest Group is organising a significant symposium between 29 June and 1 July 2017. The symposium, which will be framed around the principles and objectives underpinning the Sendai Framework is a unique opportunity to discuss, debate, inform and progress the development of law, policy and practice governing DRR and disasters at the national, regional and international levels.
The symposium is designed to bring together a multinational spectrum of participants drawn from across governmental, intergovernmental, private, NGO/civil society, academic and media sectors. Participants will comprise a mixture of those contributing papers and non-contributors informing wider discussions and debate. For further information and registration please see here.
