Conducting research that has a meaningful impact is paramount in the field of emergency services and disaster management because practical change and assistance is often more acutely required than new theoretical frameworks or analytical tools. Presenting a case of collaborative research undertaken with a Japanese community devastated by the 2011 tsunami, this chapter asks how to build relationships between academic work and hands-on emergency response and suggests that participatory and collaborative research techniques provide an ideal vehicle for doing so.
