Critical examination of the legal and governance issues, assessment of the level of preparedness in the countries that have been affected by the South-east Asia earthquake and its impact on the workings of public and private institutions on ways to improve responsiveness, availability of aid and relief and working with victims are just some of the many issues covered.

The fifteen chapters in this work are organized in three parts.

  • Part Two gives more insight on Disaster Management and Victims'Rights: Remedies and Community-Based Initiatives.
  • Part Three further discusses Disaster Management, Humanitarian Relief and Rehabilitation: Regional Perspectives.
