EM305 Politics and Policy in Emergency Management 3 hours

This course is an introduction to the concepts and basic descriptive information about the political system within the context of disaster policy and demonstrates how political factors play a role in all phases of emergency management—regardless of the type or nature of the disaster event. This course provides practical information drawn from disaster policy studies and case studies. This information is (wherever possible) reviewed for findings that can be generalized, that is, for lessons that are applicable to future disasters and emergencies.
