Special Issue "Political Economy of Natural Disasters"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2022.
The topic of natural disasters, especially in the context of climate change, is increasingly becoming the focus of public and scientific attention. Developing a common understanding of the economic size of loss due to natural disasters in addition to sociocultural consequences may increase pressure for regulatory reforms in different sections and especially in construction and land management projects, public education, and disaster insurance systems. The role of natural disasters in the context of economic development has been widely discussed in literature, albeit with inconclusive results.
This Special Issue focuses on the broad topic of “Political Economy of Natural Disasters” and includes novel research on the socioeconomic and political effects of disasters such as earthquakes, drought, sandstorm, flood and COVID-19 pandemic, among others.
We invite submissions of original research that meet our usual standards for rigor. Papers going beyond the narrow boundaries of economics (interdisciplinary approaches) are particularly welcome. The theoretical arguments should be supported by econometric tests and suggestive evidence. We also welcome review articles, policy and opinion pieces on natural disaster management, case studies, and replication studies of key works in the field of Political Economy of Natural Disasters.
