ContactRodríguez Giralt, Israel
Researcher Israel Rodríguez Giralt's work interrelates the so-called STS (science and technology studies) and the study of social movements. His research is especially interested in the new forms of technoscientific activism, citizen mobilization and social experimentation that are generated in situations of great uncertainty, such as ecological crises, disasters and emergencies. His latest research has looked at activism in terms of disability and independent living in Spain and the United Kingdom and at the participation of the communities affected, and the public in general, in managing disasters and emergencies.
He is principal investigator in the CareNet (Care and Preparedness in the Network Society) research group at the UOC.
