  • Description

  • Exploring the concept of resilience as a useful framework of analysis for how society can cope with the threat of natural and human induced hazards.

    Despite resilience having been widely adopted in research, policy and practice to describe the way in which they would like to reduce our society’s susceptibility to the threat posed by hazards, there is little consensus regarding what resilience is, what it means to society, and perhaps most importantly, how society might achieve greater resilience in the face of increasing threats from natural and human induced hazards.

    This International Conference will explore the concept of resilience as a useful framework of analysis for how society can cope with the threat of hazards, helping to understand attributes that enable physical, socio-cultural, politico-economic and natural systems to adapt, by resistance or changing in order to reach and maintain an acceptable level of functioning.

    We particularly encourage the submission of abstracts and full papers that address the conference themes listed below.
    Each abstract must be submitted through the conference website. Complete and detailed instructions for submitting abstracts and full papers are available at www.buildresilience.org/2014.

    During the submission process please indicate whether, upon acceptance, you intend to submit a full paper for double blind peer review. Abstract only submissions are also welcome. Abstracts and full papers must be submitted with the intention that at least one author will register for the conference and that the work will be presented if accepted.
