Speaker information

Prof Sir David Omand, Former permanent secretary of the Home Office, and first UK Security and Intelligence Coordinator

After successful annual conferences in 2011 and 2012, we are hoping for our 2013 annual conference to be even bigger and better. As in previous years, this conference aims to draw together a varied and dynamic audience from across UCL and beyond to report on, explore and inform research in risk and disaster reduction through thought-provoking lectures and discussions.

Our keynote lecture 'Building National Resilience and Crisis Management Capabilities' will be delivered by Professor Sir David Omand, former Permanent Secretary of the Home Office and the first UK Security and Intelligence Coordinator.

The conference is free, but you need to register.
