SESSION 13: Interdisciplinary disaster risk reduction: an uncomfortable understanding

The protection of heritage sites against disasters is a complex problem that requires a broad vision. In this sense, it is not possible to address that complexity only from one discipline. Disaster studies have been traditionally dominated by natural sciences and engineering studies, leaving social sciences in a relatively marginal position. Today, this situation is changing, but interdisciplinary research remains restricted. Interdisciplinary research implies a horizontal dialogue and allows enrichment of understanding, but also forces an uncomfortable re-examination of each discipline propositions. With these considerations, this event will gather researchers from different disciplines dedicated to disaster studies to a dialogue around the protection of world heritage sites against disasters.
