Disaster Governance : The Urban Transition in Asia (7-8 novembre 2013)

jeudi 23 mai 2013

Conférence organisée à Singapour par l’Asia Research Intitute (NUS)

Appel à communications jusqu’au 28 juin 2013

Extrait de la présentation en ligne :

« This conference focuses on how Asia’s urban populations deal with disaster and its threat from a governance perspective, with governance understood as a process of social decision-making involving government, civil society and private enterprise. Remaining mindful of the blurred boundaries and frequent areas of overlap between â ?ËÅ ?anthropogenic’ and â ?ËÅ ?natural’ disasters in urban contexts, we take â ?ËÅ ?disaster’ to denote any event that causes widespread destruction. Our central concern is with how the structures and processes of urban governance are working to develop more effective and inclusive initiatives to manage and prevent these large-scale destructive events. »
