The progression of vulnerability: multi-scalar interpretation of disasters
This study aims to investigate the social production of disaster risk and its relation with contemporary notions of geographical scales. Specifically, this research looks for linkages of the progression of vulnerability at different geographical scales; local, urban, regional, national and/or global. In so doing, this work seeks to contribute to the disciplinary debate on the social production of disaster risk by providing a critical understanding of the progression of vulnerability as a multi-scalar phenomenon.
