Flooding and Other Disasters: Assessing the Current Legal Frameworks

British Institute of International and Comparative Law, London, 16 April 2014

 

Following the recent floods in the United Kingdom, it appears timely to consider the legal issues associated with disasters. This event will provide an opportunity to hear from experts in this field, in order to assess the adequacy of the current legal frameworks on disaster relief and assistance to victims. Presentations will cover international law, as well as provide a national standpoint, including the Model Act on the Facilitation and Regulation of International Disaster Relief and Initial Recovery Assistance (developed by the IFRC, OCHA and IPU). Representatives from the British Red Cross and the Cabinet Office will also offer a particular insight into the United Kingdom’s response to disasters.

On 18 September 2013, dr. Giulio Bartolini and dr. Emanuele Sommario – members of the IDL Project Coordinating Team – participated in a round-table on International Disaster Law within XXXIV Edition of the CO.CI.M. Course (Civil-Military Cooperation).

In particular, dr. Emanuele Sommario offered a presentation entitled “International Disaster Response law: inquadramento degli strumenti di diritto internazionale pertinenti in caso di disastro”, whereas Dr. Giulio Bartolini spoke about “L’utilizzo di assets militari nelle emergenze internazionali. Analisi dei rilevanti strumenti di soft law”.
