2019 (English)In: Disaster upon Disaster: Exploring the Gap Between Knowledge, Policy and Practice / [ed] S. M. Hoffman & R. E. Barrios, New York: Berghahn Books, 2019, 1, p. 356-377Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter is a theoretical discussion about disasters and vulnerability in relation to time, and predominantly in relation to the future. It is critically scrutinizing disaster management strategies and the organization of recovery work by shedding light over (power) relations between rescuers and victims and between local knowledge and expert knowledge. In doing so, the chapter suggests alternative ways of how to gain knowledge trough participation. By exceeding the notions of recovery and resilience using concepts as utopia and dystopia the chapter is a gentle reminder of that we are responsible for a future that is not ours – but “theirs”.
