International and European Disaster Law
Start date: Sep 1, 2016,
End date: Aug 31, 2019
The “International and European Disaster Law” JM Module (IEUDL) constitutes an innovative teaching project, aimed at developing the knowledge of an emerging field of legal studies where the EU has been recently vested with specific competences in the area of civil protection activities. The Module aims to explore legal issues related to the disaster-cycle and challenges faced by humanitarian actors as International Organisations, States, NGOs. Particular attention will thus be played to the interaction of the EU regime with international instruments for the prevention of and response to disasters.IEUDL Module will benefit of the experience gained by the academic coordinator of the Module and other key teaching staff in the three-years research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education (grant FIRB, to be concluded in 2016), which allowed the Applicant institution to be recognized as a leading research centre at the European level. The IEUDL will thus represents its ancillary spin-off in terms of teaching and dissemination activities.Following an interactive approach, the Module will combine 40 hours of frontal lectures as well as 16 hours of participatory teaching methodologies, the latter including encounters with practitioners, seminars, role-playing games, presentation of papers.Ancillary events such as open conferences will foster dialogue between academics and international and national institutions, policy-makers, NGOs involved in disasters, enhancing governance of EU policies. Particular attention will be paid to dissemination activities also through a series of deliverables aimed to reach a broad audience with OER and IT tools as newletters, report of events in English and Italian, website, etc.Participation is open to Roma Tre students of different Departments. To permit graduate professionals (eg. humanitarian workers and volunteers) to continue their lifelong learning activities they could also enrol to this Module or some of its sections.
