Overview

This is an amazing opportunity for those that are interested in learning about the US disaster plan while comparing it to that of Greece. The EU funds these reliefs so students will have the opportunity to also see how the process works with the funding and administrative constraints that accompany this structure. This program will review the US system prior to travel and subsequently compare that theoretical foundation with the model utilized in Greece. This program will examine the social, political, economic, and organizational implications associated with disasters and the NGO's, GO that are activated in response to the needs of the locality, nation, and region affected by the calamity.
