Abstract

For nearly twenty years, the number of environmental disasters increased causing large population displacements. Environmental disasters are in fact human disasters since they are the result of deliberate exposure to risk as the case of Hurricane Katrina shows. Several hundred thousand New Orleans inhabitants were forced to move. They never came back. This article highlights four issues arising in the aftermath of Katrina: Do hostility and antagonism appear between displaced populations and guest populations? Why? Are displaced persons finally assimilated by their guests or not? In the latter case, do they come back to New Orleans or do they choose to move again?
