About this title


International law's role in governing disasters is undergoing a formative period in its development and reach, in parallel with concerted efforts by the international community to respond more effectively to the increasing number and intensity of disasters across the world. This Research Handbook examines a broad range of legal regimes directly and indirectly relevant to disaster prevention, mitigation and reconstruction across a spectrum of natural and manmade disasters, including armed conflict. The editors take a broad, encompassing approach to the concept of disaster, concluding that a new corpus of international disaster law may be emerging. Key contributions interweave a number of important themes from an international law perspective across a wide range of discrete topics as diverse as water, food and energy security, dispute settlement, protection of vulnerable groups, cyber terrorism, international criminal law, climate change migration and international economics and trade law. This comprehensive study makes an important contribution to international law scholarship governing disasters, which in the past has largely focused on disaster response and relief law. The different perspectives incorporated in this Research Handbook are likely to appeal not only to students and academics, but equally to governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental actors drawn across the crisis, conflict and disaster management sectors.


‘Relying on a stellar list of contributors, this Handbook attempts to define disasters and analyses whether existing international law instruments adequately respond to disaster events in a range of different scenarios. It goes further to interrogate the question of whether a new corpus of international disaster law is evolving and what form it is likely to take. As such, it makes a timely and expert contribution to the growing area of disaster law.’ Author: Rosemary Lyster, Sydney Law School, Australia

‘International disaster law is a field of growing importance in a world of rapid population growth and climate change. Breau and Samuel have assembled an impressive group of authors, and the broad coverage of the book will make it an invaluable addition to the literature on this vital topic.’ Author: Daniel Farber, University of California, Berkeley, US
