"personalization," the turning of dead bodies into "respected, although dead
persons." Society insists that disaster victims be treated as "persons, not bodies" (

considerations ...

It examines, in particular, a range of international 'soft law' instruments by which
relief and regulatory actions concerned with the management of dead bodies
