American Society of International law, Annual Meeting, Presentation by prof. Bartolini of a paper on ‘Cultural heritage and disaster risk reduction’ in the session ‘The Critical Contribution of Law towards Global Efforts to Mitigate Disaster Risk’, Washington (USA), 28 March 2019

In the framework of the prestigious Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law, prof. Bartolini took part in the panel organized by the Disaster Law Interest Group on ‘The Critical Contribution of Law towards Global Efforts to Mitigate Disaster Risk’. The panel permitted to explore the critical need for public/private stakeholders, whether national or international, to more actively draw upon and embed legal instruments (e.g. international human rights, environmental, disaster, health and maritime law) within their mechanisms and responses to reduce disaster risk and impacts: for instance, through improving consistency and coherence of standards, strengthening existing weak governance mechanisms, ensuring greater compliance and accountability, whilst better protecting vulnerable populations.
