Abstract: This Workshop Proceedings synthesises discussions about Emergency Management (EM) and Social Science Disaster Research (SSDR) held at Te Papa on 8 December 2008. The workshop continued and extended discussions initiated at a workshop on EM and SSDR held at Te Papa, Wellington on 6 December 2007. The main issue of concern to participants at the earlier workshop was the need to close the SSDR-EM practice gap. Held under the auspices of the Massey University-GNS Science Joint Centre for Disaster Research, the December 2008 workshop was sponsored by the EQC and MCDEM and aimed to deepen and extend the dialogue about how to better coordinate efforts in EM and SSDR.
