Ilan Kelman and is a Reader in Risk, Resilience and Global Health at University College London, England and a Professor II at the University of Agder, Kristiansand, Norway. His overall research interest is linking disasters and health, including the integration of climate change into disaster research and health research. That covers three main areas: (i) disaster diplomacy and health diplomacy http://www.disasterdiplomacy.org ; (ii) island sustainability involving safe and healthy communities in isolated locations http://www.islandvulnerability.org ; and (iii) risk education for health and disasters http://www.riskred.org

Ilan’s debut trade book, provisionally titled THE MYTH OF NATURAL DISASTERS, will be published by OUP in early 2020.

#ISA2019 @isanet

Continuing to enjoy the discussions at #isa2019 @isanet on #InternationalRelations #InternationalAffairs and #science beside #NathanPhillipsSquare in #Toronto #Ontario #Canada - Especial thanks to @CFR_org for a well-organised, fascinating, and useful lunch panel yesterday.

Some sessions at #isa2019 @isanet are worthwhile attending for the view. #Toronto #Ontario #Canada @SheratonCentre

Good to hear balance at #isa2019 @isanet on #ClimateChange #Migration that #climigration is not necessarily inevitable or extensive, e.g. https://t.co/TtWBaD5OhL & https://t.co/ZMnYCwkxT0 Similarly #climate change does not necessarily cause #disasters https://t.co/LpM4hp405i #DRR

Some interesting sessions today on #Climate #ClimateChange at #isa2019 @isanet Here https://t.co/yK4jOoWUae are some perspectives from #Islands #IslandStudies incorporating #vulnerability #resilience #migration #displacement #mobiliites #DRR #adaptation #CCA and #sustainability.

Good to hear plenty on #gender and #feminism at #isa2019 @isanet with some books from #disaster #DRR #Climate and #ClimateChange perspectives:
