Using Hurricane Katrina as a model, this speaker will discuss the phenomenology of disasters in America. Various deleterious factors can be forecast that impede effective emergency response. These factors can be better managed when one person is placed in a role to oversee and manage the crisis phase of a disaster. A Conflict Management Professional can unify the ad hoc crisis management team and ensure its accountability and engagement. Provision of a structural solution of this nature would signify a commitment by our government to mitigate human misery in disasters.

Join us as we speak with Cindy Mazur, she has just earned her PhD from George Mason University’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution in Fairfax, Virginia. Her research is in Conflict Management and the emergency management challenges of Hurricane Katrina. Cindy is the Director for Alternative Dispute Resolution in Washington, D.C., at a federal agency that delivers emergency management services.
