The University of Cordoba is a Spanish University, founded in 1972.

The cooperation with the University of Cordoba will involve its Department of International Law as it is specialised in law of the sea and admiralty law, as testified by current research projects funded by the Spanish Ministry of Research.

These branches of law are particularly relevant for IDRL. Suffice to mention the relevance of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea for the implementation of the early warning system created by the World Conference on Disaster Reduction (Kobe, 2005). Similarly the law of the sea has an impact on the management and cooperation in cases of man-made and natural disasters.
