NEEDS 2021 is the fifth edition of the Northern European Conference on Emergency and Disaster Studies, hosted by Mid Sweden University and organized by the Risk and Crisis Research Centre 21–23 September 2021. 

"Imagining Futures: Interstices and the Immateriality of Disasters". This year we shift the focus away from the hazardous event in itself and place it in the interstices, the in-between-disasters spaces where our imagining of possible futures takes place.
