Compter et raconter les catastrophes

Abstract : Since the 1980s, the gradual institutionalization of a World government for disasters was based on a set of figures compiled in databases. The article focuses on two of them: EM-DAT, produced by CRED, and Desinventar, produced by La Red. Each one produces, in its own way and by means of translations, a narrative of disasters and a kind of dialogue is established between them, which illustrates well the different dimensions of the “disastered” world.
