MetadataShow full item record
The concept of resilient society, which is at the forefront of the current interdisciplinary policy debate and is destined to dominate the international prevention and applied foresight discourse over the coming decades, must integrate many factors in a multi-disciplinary approach to get a grip on the complexity of contemporary change. Departing from the many valid sectorial contributions, we have to start a more in-depth debate on what a resilient society is, and should be as a whole.
