Disasters and Human Rights


Both natural and technological disasters tend to proliferate but the human rights approach remains very weak. The event expects to take into account human rights in disaster management as a factor of resilience. It will be a demonstration of the international and national human rights law in disaster situation before, during and after the disaster.
