Attached is a flyer for course that I will be offering at the Australian National University, Canberra. Although offered as part of our Master of Laws Program, the ANU College of Law has agreed that we can open it up to experienced people in the emergency management field as a professional development opportunity. If you have any questions regarding the course, please contact me; if you have questions about enrollment or processes, please contact Edwina Breingan whose contact details are on the flyer.
Blogroll, Trainer and training
Good morning Michael,
This PD opportunity is of interest, do you have details of the topics to be covered over the 4 days?
Phil Lalor – NSW SES
I haven’t yet finalised the timetable (and here’s a chance, if you want to enrol in the course and think there’s something we should cover, let me know now!). The topics we covered last time this unit was offered (2012) were:
THE COMMONWEALTH AS LEAD AGENCY: The role of the military in disaster response.
AUSTRALIA’S EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ARRANGEMENTS
MAINSTREAMING: Emergency management in land use planning.
LIABILITY: Causing a hazard.
LIABILITY: Failure to prevent a hazard.
POST EVENT INQUIRIES.
PAYING FOR IT ALL.
ISSUES IN INTERNATIONAL DISASTER RESPONSE.
The topics this year will be similar with the added bonus that we will be joined by Federico Casolari, Assistant Professor of International Law and Senior Lecturer of European Union Law at the School of Law of the University of Bologna. Professor Casolari is an expert on international disaster law and will, in April-May co-host a course on international disaster law in Sanremo, Italy (see the link to the flyer here Programme Brochure IDL Course 2014).
