‘Risk and Resilience: Redefining Security’ 5-7 October 2011
The aim of this conference is to bring together state-based and national policing and security scholars and practitioners to identify, discuss, and analyse our understanding of risk, preparedness and resilience. A particular focus will be given to issues relating to Australian national security and disaster management in an all-hazards environment.
The conference will discuss state and national trends in natural and human-made disaster response by combining different perspectives on a variety of emergency situations.
Emergency as a concept that can encompass a number of events such as natural disasters, armed conflict, or terrorist attacks. Responses to these events are governed by distinctly different, but frequently overlapping social, policy, and regulatory frameworks guiding emergency management strategies and practice. The concepts of resilience and preparedness are becoming more prominent in this field and will be a main focus of the conference.
