IDEAL is an international network of academics, practitioners, and students involved with disaster law, as well as partnered with various research centers and organisations.


Our members are passionate about learning, researching, and sharing various different perspectives about the impacts and challenges of disaster events. Our aim is to be a hub for legal research and discussion related to the various questions and challenges posed by emergencies and disasters. 


By fostering an international collaboration of ideas, IDEAL Net hopes to facilitate a community of accessible disaster law research and researchers from around the world, that is both interesting and relevant.

The network is ever-growing and we welcome all interested persons to join. If you wish to become a member, please sign up for our mailing list here
