New Book on Emergency Management

22 November, 2012

Professor Allan McConnell (Government and International Relations, University of Sydney) and Dr Tim Legrand (Griffith Centre for Governance and Public Policy) have edited a collection of key scholarly articles which address the international dynamics of emergency policy and practice,  providing a critical perspective on the challenges that globalisation presents to policymakers under crisis conditions.

The essays consider the global dimensions of a wide range of crises and include case studies on planning and prevention, acute responses, recovery and reconstruction, and learning about crisis. The editors also provide original chapters on "Mapping Global Influences on National Crisis Management" and "Issues for the Future: Emerging Debates on the Intersection of Globalization and National Crisis Management".
