Law and legal issues in international disaster response: a desk study

This desk study compiles the findings of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent's research and consultations with stakeholders over the last few years about existing legal frameworks and regulatory problems in international disaster response. It draws on over two dozen legal and operational case studies, a wide-ranging global survey of major stakeholders, and the discussions in a series of formal regional forums including high level representatives of governments, National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UN agencies, NGOs and other interested parties.
