Summer School on Cascading Disasters, Institutions and Organizations (CAINO)

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): University of Groningen

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 05 - 09 Jul 2021 Location: Online event

Combining advanced theoretical knowledge with practical methodological skills, this summer school will tackle the determinants of resilience to cascading disasters in an interdisciplinary manner by focusing on organizational settings and institutional arrangements. Participants will be equipped with knowledge and skills allowing them to analyze the political environment of cascading disasters, criticalities in existing organizations, build risk awareness in communities, strengthen disaster management institutions and build more resilient societies. The intensive one-week programme will combine lectures, panel discussions and groupwork with the aim to offer an inter- and trans-disciplinary perspective to risk awareness and preparedness.

After this course, students will be able to:

  1. Gain knowledge and understanding on the key dimensions of societal resilience to cascading disasters
  2. Critically reflect on strategies to strengthen resilience in organizations and institutions
  3. Apply analytical reasoning to complex disaster situations
  4. Propose workable solutions to meet the societal challenges associated with cascading disasters

This summer school is a combination of:

  • lectures on theoretical and methodological concepts and approaches
  • interactive learning activities with lecturers and practitioners
  • problem-based learning in small groups
  • panel discussions with leading experts in the field
