About Global Crisis, Conflict and Disaster Management at University of Reading

​The number, intensity, and impact of diverse forms of crises, emergencies, conflicts and disasters are increasing. During the past ten years alone, an estimated 1.5 billion people have been affected by some form of disaster, complex or conflict-related event.

This new and innovative multidisciplinary programme examines the role of global (national, regional and international) law, policy, and practice across the spectrum of possible conflicts, ‘man-made’ and ‘natural’ disasters. It further considers significant crises not escalating to the scale of conflict or disaster, as well as complex emergencies. The programme reflects current and changing global priorities such as the Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction; UN Climate Change Conference 2015; UN Sustainable Development Goals 2015; and the World Humanitarian Summit 2016.

There are a number of overarching themes and questions, including: the relationship between different legal regimes; the role law does and should have in responding to crises, conflicts, or disasters; the relationship between law and non-legal disciplines; humanitarianism, sustainability, resilience, disaster risk reduction, and disaster management.
