Description

Global Cases in Best and Worst Practice in Crisis and Emergency Management is the first book to focus on select global cases from the perspective of best and worst practices in the context of crisis and emergency management. Bringing together the most established scholars and experts in the field, it offers theories along with an empirical, success-and-failure analysis. It presents the cases using a "lessons learned" approach, highlighting the good, the bad, and the ugly for the benefit of future crisis and emergency management.

The book is divided into three sections with chapters that focus on

  • Macro-level emergency policy cases addressing policy design and decisions with long- and short-term impact
  • Cases giving instructive examples of prevention, leadership, coordination, mitigation, organization, planning, and supplies
  • Cases and discussions of chaos and transformation theories, surprise management theory, and applying theories to building capacity and resilience in governance

The book also includes chapter objectives, analysis points, questions, key terms, presentation and lesson exercises, references, and additional reading lists.

Policy experts, researchers, practitioners, instructors, and students will find the case studies in this book illuminating. With its combination of theory and practice and coverage of a wide range of disciplines, it provides an ideal primary or companion text for courses in emergency and disaster management, public administration, political science, and global crisis studies.
