The Asian Tsunami and Post-Disaster Aid: Critical Perspectives
The Asian Tsunami of 2004 drew worldwide attention due to the sheer scale of destruction: massive loss of lives, livelihoods, and infrastructure. It attracted unprecedented international attention, assistance, and aid. While there has been a lot written on the Asian tsunami, mostly by natural scientists, engineers, disaster management, and policy specialists, yet a sustained body of scholarly work in the social sciences on long-term Rehabilitation has not been developed. The existing perspectives from different disciplines are understandably influenced by the enormous loss of property and material devastation and the efforts to manage and mitigate disasters.
