Bachelor of Arts in Security and Strategic Studies – Emergency Management

As part of the BA in Security and Strategic Studies, the Emergency Management track focuses on the short-term consequences of disasters, regardless of their origins. However, the planning of crisis management is a mandatory step to limit the consequences of disasters. How do the authorities learn from other disasters? How do they react to these events, especially when the public resources are limited (e.g. Haiti vs. New-Zeeland in 2010)? On the ground the effects of a crisis depend on the coordination of emergency services and international aid. If each disaster is a unique case-study, there are lessons that the actors involved in the process may learn.
