In order to fulfill their duty of care prescribed by law in many countries and in order to ensure the safety of students, professors and staff members taking part in an international activity, universities are of more and more required to have a safety plan for their international activities. A comprehensive security plan includes many aspects including a governance document, prevention and management measures as well as crisis management tools.
 
The global crisis, experienced in recent months, attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic has placed universities under significant stress. The latter had to adapt to the situation and use their various crisis management tools in order to take charge of the situation and to limit the consequences on their international activities and on members of their community. In some cases, this situation made it possible to realize that the current crisis management structure was deficient, causing the organization to improvise and its actors to exhaust themselves.
 
Following such an event, it appears essential to conduct a feedback activity in order to assess the effectiveness of your crisis management. As monitoring and evaluation are also an integral part of the international standard in risk management (ISO31000), the feedback activity will allow your institution to ask the right questions to target its strengths and weaknesses in order to 'improvement of the tools and practices in place.
 
Therefore, and in partnership with IFCU, Aléas is offering a webinar to all of its member universities during which will be presented a method and a tool for carrying out an effective feedback activity. The participating universities will use the example of Covid-19 to apply the concepts in practice.
 
Goals :
· Develop your institutional capacity to carry out a feedback activity;
· Examine the practices in place;
· Formulate recommendations and improvements to be made to its crisis management in order to be better prepared for future situations;
· Improve the quality of its security plan for international activities.

This webinar may also be of interest to staff and stakeholders of an institution involved in crisis management and emergency measures.
