Publication: Social resilience and natural hazards – analzying multiple social levels of resilience in the context of planning and risk governance
The paper conceptualizes resilience as a matrix of social levels (intra-organizational, organizational-, and inter-organizational) and social capacities (coping, participative, adaptive, and transformative). The paper reflects on some advantages and limitations of this resilience conceptualization. The concept is, for instance, strong in considering processes of interpretation and social change. However, it has only limited usefulness in simple quantitative attempts to measure and assess resilience in “the real world”. Furthermore, some implications for future research and practice are discussed.
