POLT 797/897B Disaster Policy and Politics
Natural disaster policy and politics combine theory, proposals, plans, action and government responsibilities. In the United States, the policies and politics are complex and confusing due to federalism and intergovernmental relations. This seminar will look at the history, policy and program development, and political challenges faced by all three levels of government in response to natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, blizzards, drought, and earthquakes.
