Ecological risks and disasters : new experiences in China and Europe

Laurence Roulleau-Berger

Published on : January 22, 2016
Ecological risks and disasters - L. Roulleau-Berger
"This book considers a range of ecological risks and disasters and how they are managed in both China and Europe. It examines how far risks and disasters are perceived and managed in different ways in Europe and China, explores how an increasing humanitarian approach to "vulnerable people" being taken up in Europe is also being adopted in China, and assesses how far the management of disasters differs from wider government management of more ordinary aspects of everyday life. The book argues that the same stresses and strains which are present in normal society are there also, in enhanced form, in disaster situations."
Laurence Roulleau-Berger is a CNRS senior researcher and the co-director of the International Associate Laboratory "Post-Western sociologies and field research in China and France".
