Disaster Risk Reduction and International Law Symposium (29 June and 1 July 2017)

GLAR is delighted to announce details of a major international symposium on Disaster Risk Reduction and International Law, organised by the Reading School of Law and the multidisciplinary Walker Institute, co-sponsored by the American Society of International Law (Disaster Law Interest Group). Framed around the principles and objectives underpinning the Sendai Framework on DRR 2015-30, and cognisant of the relevance of other global initiatives including the Sustainable Development Goals 2015 and UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, this will be a unique opportunity to discuss, debate, inform and progress the development of law, policy and practice governing DRR and disasters at the national, regional and international levels. The symposium will take place between 29 June and 1 July 2017. More details can be found on the Walker Institute website, which will be regularly updated with more details ahead of the event.
