Yearbook of International Disaster Law aims to represent a hub for critical debate in this emerging area of research and policy and to foster the interest of academics, practitioners, stakeholders and policy-makers on legal and institutional issues relevant to all forms of natural, technological and human-made hazards. This Yearbook primarily addresses the international law dimension of relevant topics, alongside important regional and national dimensions relevant for further development of legal and policy initiatives. The Thematic Section of Volume 2, entitled ‘Disasters and…: Exploring New Areas of Research’, was conceived to critically assess the relationship between disasters and a variety of different branches, topics or theoretical approaches pertaining to international law, as a means of focusing attention toward less explored and emerging fields of study and practice.
