In the framework of the FIRB research project on disaster law funded by the Italian Ministry of University (2013-2016) research units (Universities of Bologna, Roma Tre, S. Anna and Uninettuno) developed two databases dealing with legal issues pertaining to disasters. 

1) Human Rights Protection and Disaster

This digital database collects relevant practice of international and regional human rights bodies dealing with natural and technological disasters and their impact on the enjoyment of relevant human rights. It has been elaborated by Tommaso Natoli under the coordination of the scientific responsible of the local Roma Tre Unit (Giulio Bartolini)

2) International Disaster Law Database

The Database covers international instruments related to the various phases of the disaster cycle. The instruments included belong to two main categories: • Treaties and other binding instruments; • Soft law documents. Research and preparatory work for the Database has been performed by Claudia Morini (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna), Alice Riccardi (Uninettuno University), Susanna Villani (University of Bologna), Chiara Macchi (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna) and Emanuele Sommario (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna), under the latter’s scientific supervision.
