Abstract [en]

Climate change, globalization, urbanization, social isolation, and increased interconnectednessbetween physical, human, and technological systems pose major challenges to disaster risk reduction(DRR). Subsequently, economic losses caused by natural hazards are increasing in many regions of theworld, despite scientific progress, persistent policy action, and international cooperation. We argue thatthese dramatic figures call for novel scientific approaches and new types of data collection to integratethe two main approaches that still dominate the science underpinning DRR: the hazard paradigm and thevulnerability paradigm. Building from these two approaches, here we propose a research framework thatspecifies the scope of enquiry, concepts, and general relations among phenomena. We then discuss theessential steps to advance systematic empirical research and evidence-based DRR policy action.

Abstract [en]

This article focuses on how democratic ideals are translated into practice with regard to dealing with background inequality between participants in participatory spaces. The paper draws on a tension between deliberative democracy and difference democracy. Although recent decades have seen a closing of the gap between these two streams of democratic theorizing, they could still be said to propose different methods for dealing with background inequality between participants. This paper builds on an ethnographic study of Rockaway Wildfire, a local branch of the wider Occupy Sandy network that emerged in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York City in 2012, to organize politically with socio-economically marginalized communities struck by the storm, with the aim to empower them. Occupy activists held and practiced ideals best conceptualized as being part of a difference democratic theory whereas the residents instead questioned, challenged and resisted these methods, based on ideas adhering to a deliberative democratic reasoning. Through an analysis building on participatory observations, field observations and interviews, three theoretical problems are brought to light: the problem of situated marginalization beyond commonly acknowledged identity markers, the problem of variation in individual agency and the problem of intersectional positions.

Abstract [en]

The magnitude of a disaster is not measured solely by the size of an earthquake or strength of a storm. It depends on how societies are structured and organised, as this affects their disaster resilience.

Abstract [en]

This article devises a road ahead for future studies of gender mainstreaming of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) processes. In comparison to other fields, DRR processes lag behind in implementing a gender perspective, despite decades of activism among practitioners, activists and researchers. More research is needed to understand why this is so, since there is only a handful studies focusing the issue and none that systematically explores this failure. In comparison, there is an abundance of research done on gender mainstreaming within other fields of practice. With help of this bulk of research, the article extends the limited research done on gender mainstreaming of DRR. Gender mainstreaming theory from other fields is used to identify relevant factors that may hinder effective gender mainstreaming of DRR, in order to devise a solid research strategy for more systematic research on the topic in the future.
