Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience Events

(17 January 2018)

IHRR has a wide variety of events this term including seminars and workshops. These events are free to attend and open to all. The first seminar of this term will be led by Simin Davoudi, Professor of Environmental Policy & Planning, Director of GURU (Global Urban Research Unit). Full event details are available here.

The Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience is harnessing the capacity of researchers from across Durham University to make a difference to how we live with emerging hazards and risks. Making a difference means moving beyond what we already do, to challenge the core assumptions, scientific, economic and social, about how we live with hazard and risk. One way we do this is through our seminar series. We run a range of seminars and workshops; forthcoming events are as follows.
