External Publications

LEAD is involved with a range of different publication projects with external parties from around the country and the world.

This project is a multi-university collaboration between law scholars throughout New Zealand. The materials here form a repository of resources available to the law community.

An online tool with the goal of reducing the influx of goods donations arriving in the Pacific after a disaster. It is designed to educate and inform compassionate and generous Australians and New Zealanders, about why during disasters not all goodwill, (though well intentioned) does good.

The IFRC hosts the "world's largest collection of documents relating to disaster law". There are currently six document categories: case law, documents of international organisations, documents of transnational private actors, documents of treaty bodies, RCRC documents, and treaties. Two additional categories will be added soon: literature, and national documents.

The Jean Monnet Project Disseminating Disaster Law for Europe (DILAW4E) aims to support information activities, disseminate knowledge and promote research debate on the crucial implications of disaster law for the European, international and national institutions.
