This thoroughly revised second edition investigates the role of international law in preventing, preparing for and responding to both ‘sudden’ and ‘slow-onset’ disasters.

Expert contributors take a new look at disasters and international law, covering key concepts such as disaster risk, frameworks which regulate response and recovery from a domestic and regional perspective, and questions concerning vulnerability and marginalization. With both revised and entirely new chapters, this Research Handbook explores international law in light of significant contemporary global challenges and developments in theory, law, and practice. It also reflects on the Covid-19 pandemic and the lessons learnt to implement change for future crises.

The broad perspectives in this Research Handbook ensure this is an essential read for scholars and researchers of international law and disasters. Policymakers in the fields of law and development, governance and regulation will also find this book to be a useful resource for future planning.
