Dealing with Disasters:
How Governments Cope with Unexpected Events
with Dr. Saundra Schneider
The Ebbola Epidemic. The Fukushima Earthquake. Superstorm Sandy. Hurricane Katrina. The BP Oil Spill. These were all crisis situations that required immediate and extensive disaster management.
Professor Saundra Schneider from Michigan State University will take you beyond the sensationalistic media headlines and address what goes on during and after something has gone terribly wrong.
What are the governmental response systems? What kind of behaviour can we expect from citizens during such disasters? And what do these examples teach us? Come and join Dr. Schneider in a discussion on the issues and potential problems surrounding disaster management, so that we can identify and address crisis situations more quickly, responsibly, and effectively.
