Social Services in Times of Disaster
We would like to draw your attention to a Nordic symposium on Social Services in Times of Disaster, held in May 4-5 in Reykjavík, Iceland.
This Nordic Symposium will bring together a multi disciplinary group of experts including administrators, academics and students as well as stakeholders working in the field, to discuss the role of local social services in times of disaster. The aim of the Symposium is to discuss the roles of local social services in preparedness, emergency response and the aftermath of disasters and how social services can enhance the resilience of residents and communities under such circumstances.
The symposium is organized by the project the Nordic Welfare Watch – in response to crises.
With warm regards,
Guðný Björk Eydal, project leader NWW
