Governance and Disaster Management – an update
I remain intrigued with governance matters with regard to recovery. Today I ran across a short (7 page) cogent paper on that topic, issued by the UN’s Knowledge for Recovery Series; the title is Why Governance Issues Are Important in Recovery? I recommend the Series site as well as the short paper.
A week or so ago, I provided a link to three interesting papers from the Australia and New Zealand School of Government, which is supported by several universities, government agencies, and other organizations. I especially liked the paper titled “Governing the Recovery from the Canterbury Earthquake 2010-2011: the debate over Institutional Design” by Rachel Brookie.
I would like to see more research done on governance regarding the U.S. and Canadian systems. I am especially interested in any analyses of the Canadian EM governance system; any suggestions from readers would be appreciated.
Note to graduate students: this topic is wide open for original research!
