Disaster Study, Crisis Study, and the Discipline of Public Administration: A personal reflection

Roger Wettenhall

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Based in part on personal experience within the disaster study tradition, a late discovery of the crisis study tradition, and the development of some relevant Australian study centers, this chapter comments on differences of approach separating the two traditions. In inquiring into connections with the discipline of Public Administration, it concludes that there is not much evidence of serious association between that discipline and either the disaster or the crisis school.
