Welcome to NEEDS 2020, the fifth edition of the Northern European Conference on Emergency and Disaster Studies, hosted by Mid Sweden University and organized by the Risk and Crisis Research Centre 10–12 March in Östersund, Sweden.
Imagining Futures: Interstices and the Immateriality of Disasters
This year we shift the focus away from the hazardous event in itself and place it in the in-between-disasters spaces where our imagining of possible futures takes place.
