In his latest book (in Danish only), Katastrofer - og hvad de kan lære os om os selv, Kristian provides unique insight into disasters, and how we as individuals and societies react. 
The seminal piece, Disaster Law, investigates how a change in the way disasters are understood and managed affects fundamental notions of duty, responsibility and justice. Kristian's present research continues these efforts, by investigating a wide range of issues relating to law and disasters.
