Dr. Saundra Schneider

Workshop description

Hurricane Sandy. Katrina. The BP oil spill. These were all disaster situations in need of 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, and how we can make it better.
