presents a panel event on
How can disaster response effectively address vulnerable populations, those “left behind” by inequalities in race, class, gender, and bodily impairment? How should the state take such inequalities into account in disaster policy – and how can citizen groups affected by disaster effectively negotiate these inequalities to pursue a unified goal? Drawing on fieldwork-based case studies and ethical theory, panelists will examine how disaster response is inflected by vulnerability – and how it could be improved.
