About this book

This book presents a collection of papers discussing especially social factors that support individuals, organizations, markets, and societies confronted with socio-economic crises. The papers were written mainly by international sociologists dealing with social resilience from different viewpoints and offering new theoretical perspectives as well as empirical facts.

Why are so many researchers, politicians, and practitioners thinking and writing about resilience today? Social scientists have started only recently to deal with social resilience in various spheres. Since not long ago, resilience was strongly connected with the question of what makes individuals or ecosystems to overcome threats like disruption, catastrophes, external shocks etc. Thus, a new research perspective on resilience is offered.
