Home RESEARCHResearch Group Slow Disaster Research Lab

Slow Disaster Research Lab (2021-2026)

This project involves the creation of a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional disaster research network. Network members will collaborate on research projects tracing slow disaster formation and impacts with a comparative methodology. Emphasis is placed on integrating social science, policy, engineering, and public health approaches to enable climate change mitigation, sustainable technological innovation, and policy innovation. Member institutions will host visiting scholars, and a collaborative educational venture is envisioned. This collaborative will work globally, across temporal and geographical scales, and will seek to bring together novel combinations of researchers to produce policy, education, and technological/planning solutions to disaster vulnerabilities. Scholars will work in multi-disciplinary teams, and will hold field schools globally over a period of five years. The KAIST STP unit and Center for Anthropocene Studies are ideal venues within which to anchor such a collaborative venture. Members will include: UC Irvine, Tulane University, KAIST, University of Lisbon, KTH Stockholm, Tohoku University, Catholic University of Chile, Santiago. Proposed funders: National Science Foundation (United States), National Research Foundation of Korea (South Korea), Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), European Research Council (ERC).
