CHARACTERIZING AND ANALYZING SOLIDARITY MECHANISMS FOLLOWING HURRICANE IRMA: WEIGHT IN RESILIENCE PROCESSES AND INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE ADAPTATIONS IN POST-DISASTER (CASCIRA)

The CASCIRA research project aims at characterizing and analyzing the solidarity mechanisms put in place after the passage of Hurricane Irma in order to understand their weight in the post-disaster resilience and adaptation processes at different scales (from the collective to the individual). The originality of Annabelle Moatty’s research lies in the comparative approach of solidarity mechanisms in two territories of the French West Indies: Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélémy, as well as their relations with Metropolitan France and Guadeloupe.
