Risk and Resilience

    Abstract

    The concepts of risk and resilience have spread to the environmental social sciences and many other disciplines. Nevertheless, the relationship between the concepts often remains ambiguous. This chapter charts the recent developments of the concepts in technical risk assessment and resilience engineering and examines how the environmental social sciences have enriched the understanding of risk and resilience. The technical and social sciences have had different understandings of risk. However, recent developments in technical risk assessment have opened for cross-fertilization between the social sciences and technical risk analysis. This cross-fertilization enhances an in-depth understanding of risks and resilience. It is argued herein that it is fruitful to see the concepts as complementary and to exploit both of them in analyses of the environment and society.
