NATURE OF THE COURSE, LEARNING OBJECTIVES AND METHODOLOGY:
The course is structured as a 5-day intensive course (Monday-Friday). The course is planned to be held in person, subject to any development in the Covid-19 health emergency.
The course aims to:
provide participants with a sound knowledge of the legal frameworks pertaining to disaster management activities and the role of human rights in the prevention and response to natural and technological disasters;
raise awareness on the critical role of human rights in disaster settings, and therefore favour a more human-rights sensitive approach to disaster management;
engage participants in exchanges of ideas and experiences so as to foster academic and professional cooperation among all those involved.
