The EU role as humanitarian actor is a salient theme in current global affairs. It is also of great concern to the EU policy makers who aim at enhancing the EU rapid and effective response to serious crises in the world.

This workshop is opened to significant contributions of policy-oriented research about the EU role in global policies for disaster prevention, as well as disaster relief and reconstruction efforts in natural and man-made disasters.

The workshop accepts contributions that undergo three level of analysis and offer a detailed elaboration of the EU vision of disaster prevention, relief and reconstruction: on a macro level, contributions that explore multilateralism as the emergent modus operandi for global disaster policies; on meso level contributions that focus on the characteristics of EU disaster policies and practices; on micro level contributions that concentrate on EU and global policies effects on states and communities.
