Event Details

Over the past 40 years, Disasters has been the leading journal in disaster studies. At the forefront of research and debates, it has challenged policy and practice concerning catastrophes, complex emergencies and protracted crises around the world. To celebrate this momentous occasion, ODI convenes a one-day conference bringing together scholars and experts from many countries to discuss how studies of disasters have evolved over the past 40 years and the implications for policy and practice.

As the world continues to face large-scale disasters and crises, it is critical that we review progress in reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience. The conference takes lessons from the past 40 years to re-evaluate current frameworks for prevention and response and draw up a forward-looking agenda for disaster studies.
