Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Human Rights and Disasters provides the first comprehensive review of the role played by international human rights law in the prevention and management of natural and technological disasters.

Each chapter is written by a leading expert and offers a state-of-the-art overview of a significant topic within the field. In addition to focussing on the role of human rights obligations in disaster preparedness and response, the volume offers a broader perspective by examining how human rights law interacts with other legal regimes and by addressing the challenges facing humanitarian organizations.

Preceded by a foreword by the International Law Commission?s Special Rapporteur on the Protection of Persons in the Event of Disasters, the volume is divided into four parts:?

  • Part I: Human rights law and disasters in the framework of public international law
  • Part II: Role and application of human rights law in disaster settings
  • Part III: (Categories of) rights of particular significance in a disaster context
  • Part IV: Protection of vulnerable groups in disaster settings

Providing up-to-date and authoritative contributions covering the key aspects of human rights protection in disaster settings, this volume will be of great interest to scholars and students of humanitarianism, international law, EU law, disaster management and international relations, as well as to practitioners in the field of disaster management.
