In her book "Disasterland. An Ethnography of the International Disaster Community" (Palgrave Macmillan, June 2020), Sandrine Revet studies what occurs behind de scenes of “natural” disasters and more precisely behind the scenes of the social world of “natural” disasters. The anthropologist offers an ethnography of the world of professionals working on so-called “natural” disasters. Sandrine Revet presents her approach and her research background. Interview by Miriam Périer, CERI.
