Aims & objectives


EU Disaster Response Law in an International Context – Summer School
(with support from the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union – dec. n. 2013-2683/001-001)

Assistance in favour of the population of L’Aquila (2009), Haiti (2010) and Nepal (2015) hit by high magnitude earthquakes, the Philippines (in 2013 struck by destructive typhoons) or Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (for the 2014 floods) are just some examples of the action of the European Union on the occasion of disasters.
The 2007 Lisbon treaty has empowered the EU with a new competence in the field of civil protection. Within this context, the Union Civil Protection Mechanism has been established in December 2013, in order to promote solidarity and facilitate the coordination of Member States' actions, “with a view to improving the effectiveness of systems for preventing, preparing for and responding to natural and man-made disasters”.

The Summer School on European Union Disaster Response Law in an International Context organized by the Department of International, Legal, Historical and Political Studies (DILHPS) of the University of Milan aims at deepening the knowledge of this EU action.

Teaching activities include lectures by academics, case studies and presentations by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and by officials of international organizations.

In a vertical dimension, it will take into consideration the interaction of the EU regime and activities with instruments of cooperation for the prevention of and response to natural and man-made disasters established by other international institutions. The interplay between EU and national mechanisms will also be considered, in order to assess their degree of complementarity. The involvement of NGOs will also be taken into account for a thorough evaluation of their proper role in disaster relief and assistance activities.

The Summer School is supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union: no enrollment fee is required.
