About this book

The use of regional organizations to mitigate and respond to disasters has become a global trend. This book examines the role regional organizations play in managing disaster risk through a comparative study of ten regional organizations, demonstrating their current limitations and future potential.

Reviews

"The rise of supra-national organization is a striking feature of our period. Much of this organization is regional, rather than global, but the regional structures have gotten less attention. Simon Hollis has done us a real service with this extraordinary study of the rise of Disaster Risk Management arrangements in regional organizations around the world. His core finding is that the DRM arrangements dramatically reflect global ideas and models rather than region-specific ones. This directly addresses the issue of whether regional structures fragment global society: it turns out they are most prominently media for integration." - John W. Meyer, Stanford University, USA

''We live in a world where disasters increasingly traverse borders. One way to address these transboundary disasters is through regional organizations. Simon Hollis takes us on a regional tour, explicating how these organizations can help to further societal resilience. Meticulously researched and clearly written, this book breaks important new ground in the field of disaster studies.'' - Arjen Boin, Leiden University, The Netherlands
