Academic gives keynote address at Disaster Response conference

Dr Simon Bennett, from the University's Criminology Centre, recently gave the keynote address at an international conference, Disaster Response: Challenging Myths and Improving Reality. 

The Kenyons-sponsored conference, held on February 16 and February 17, 2004 in Grantham, attracted over 100 delegates from around the world. Dr Bennett talked about the July 2002 mid-air collision over Uberlingen in southern Germany in which over 70 people died. 

His analysis focused on the underlying causes of the disaster. Dr Bennett commented that the 2004 accession of eastern European states to the European Union provided a 'window of opportunity' to address disjunctures in operational practice.
