A Scientific Journey from Practice to Theory
- (view affiliations)
This book does not advocate for one definition or one field of research when talking about resilience; it does not assume that the use of resilience concepts is necessarily positive for safety. We encourage a broad approach, seeking inspiration across different scientific and practical domains for the purpose of further developing resilience at a theoretical and an operational level of relevance for different high-risk industries. The aim of the book is twofold:
1. To explore different approaches for operationalization of resilience across scientific disciplines and system levels.
2. To create a theoretical foundation for a resilience framework across scientific disciplines and system levels.By presenting chapters from leading international authors representing different research disciplines and practical fields we develop suggestions and inspiration for the research community and practitioners in high-risk industries.
