Speaker information

Dr Ilan Kelman, UCL Institute for Risk & Disaster Reduction and UCL Institute for Global Health

Disasters frequently strike countries with violent or political conflicts. Do calamities bring people together to achieve humanitarian imperatives? Or does crisis create tension that drives people apart? From Nepal's earthquake to climate change, and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami to pandemics, join Dr Ilan Kelman as he explores ‘disaster diplomacy’ possibilities.
