IEUDL Newsletter - #3, August 2019

 

Editorial by the Module Coordinator

 

Dear readers,

it is my pleasure to introduce the last newsletter of the Jean Monnet Module ‘International and European Disaster Law’. The newsletter highlights main legal and institutional developments in this area, activities carried out by the Jean Monnet Module and recent publications present in books and legal journals.

This overviews permit to confirm the increasing relevance of this area of law both for several stakeholders (international organisations, states and non-governmental organisations), and academics, being this topic able to attract attention by scholars going to specialize in this area or, in general terms, by colleagues able to appreciate the impact of disasters with regard to legal regimes pertaining to several branches of international law.

During the 3 years of activities of the Jean Monnet Module, it has been possible to foster attention on such issues, developing an innovative teaching course with the fundamental support of key staff, namely Claudia Morviducci, Tommaso Natoli, Alice Riccardi and Emanuele Sommario. A special thanks go to such colleagues for their interest in contributing to this Module as well as, in particular, to Tommaso Natoli, a post-doc researcher at the Roma Tre Department during the years of management of this Module, for assisting the coordinator in several activities related to this initiative.

Finally I am particularly grateful to the dozens of students who have attended the course of international and European disaster law emphasizing a concrete interest for this innovative area of research and being also able to professionally cooperate in some relevant activities as pro bono reports managed on behalf of the Disaster Law Programme, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Hopefully, this Module has been able to generate some interest on such critical issues in this new generation of forthcoming professionals, civil society representatives, governmental authorities, permitting to foster their awareness and concern on the potential relevance of legal issues in disaster settings for involved communities.

I hope you enjoy this Newsletter!

Warm regards,

Giulio Bartolini

Associate professor of international law
