Author: Korstanje Maximiliano
Abstract: Recently, the media bombarded audience respecting to new based on natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and economic. Although in other countries, there is a long tradition of disaster research with a strong intervention of State, in Argentina this field is in its infancy. This not only represents a serious problem for conducting evacuee programs in tourist destinations, but also gives to journalism a vital role in managing post disaster reactions. Since universities are not interested in forming the future policy makers, the gap is fulfilled by secondary non-skilled actors. As a result, tourist destinations run serious risk to collapse because of disasters. Key Words: Lack of applied research, Disasters, Design, Evacuation process
Description: Resumen Actualmente, los medios masivos de comunicación bombardean día y noche a sus audiencias con noticias que se refieren a ataques terroristas, desastres naturales o crisis financieras. Aunque en otros países existe un corpus avanzado de conocimiento e investigación respecto como manejar desastres, en Argentina, este campo se encuentra poco explorado. Ello no solo representa un serio problema porque no existen órganos que centralicen la información en momentos de emergencia, sino que además le confieren al periodismo demasiados atributos. Producto de la ignorancia y la falta de interés, el sector turístico afronta un serio desafío ante los desastres. Palabras Claves: Falta de investigación, Desastres, Diseño, Proceso de Evacuación
