As part of the « Trait d’Urbain » seminar
By examining the complex relationship between law and space in seismic risk management, this presentation explores how citizens living in the Karabağlar risky area become spatio-legal detectives to reduce uncertainties arising from the implementation of Disaster Law in Turkey. The study investigates how the local community establishes a strong interconnection between the law and their territory, collectively developing spatio-legal consciousness to unravel uncertainties that impact their daily lives.
