All Fellows picture

The ISSC is proud to announce the selection of 25 new, talented Fellows, who will work on creative, interdisciplinary perspectives on risk interpretation and action at a seminar co-sponsored by the ISSC”s World Social Science Fellows programme, the Risk Interpretation and Action working group of the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) programme, the IRDR International Center of  Excellence, Taipei, the international START Secretariat, and the Royal Society of New Zealand.

The seminar will take place in early December 2013, when the Fellows will join a number of senior scientists, including David Johnston (Joint Centre for Disaster Research, Massey University, New Zealand) and Richard Eiser (University of Sheffield, United Kingdom), to explore if and how a recently published framework for response to natural hazards can be integrated across scientific disciplines and cultural contexts.

The seminar will be hosted by Massey University in Wellington and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and the University of Canterbury in Christchurch.
