Rosaliya Kasamska, a Researcher at Law and Internet Foundation, participated in the CARISMAND Third Stakeholder Assembly that was held in Lisbon on 27 and 28 February 2018.

The main purpose of the Third Stakeholder Assembly is to present and discuss the CARISMAND Toolkit by getting together disaster managers, policy makers, community leaders alongside operation officers and practitioners in the field of disaster management to discuss different topics and issues raised concerning the cultural factors that may shape and influence citizens’ risk perceptions, emotions and risk behaviour in the context of man-made, natural and technical disasters, identification of best-practice examples and establishment and testing of solutions for culturally-informed best practices in the field.

Rosaliya Kasamska participated with a presentation on the topic “Improving trust, improving disaster”, which discussed the role of trust between disaster management authorities and citizens for better disaster management with a special focus on preparedness and response in case of disasters.
