14 September 2017

Over the past 40 years, Disasters has been the leading journal in disaster studies. At the forefront of research and debates, it has challenged policy and practice concerning catastrophes, complex emergencies and protracted crises around the world. To celebrate this momentous occasion, ODI convenes a one-day conference bringing together scholars and experts from many countries to discuss how studies of disasters have evolved over the past 40 years and the implications for policy and practice.
