Introduction: Through Innovative Dimensions
The Nexus of Resilience and Public Policy in a Modern Risk Society is to investigate the nexus of resilience and public policy to articulate resilience-based public policy which can be utilized in diverse contexts and scales to operationalize resilience in a constantly changing, complex, and uncertain risk society. The major goal of resilience-based public policy is to provide pathways for nurturing, strengthening, or creating resilience for communities, different layers of societies, and their relations. This could be implemented through innovative dimensions of knowledge and practices, i.e., by recombining and restructuring existing knowledge and practices, and more specifically, by going back and forth between concepts and practices to implement systemic and overarching analysis of multifaceted concepts, cases, and practices that transcend disciplines or sectors. Especially, with special attention to relationships or boundary areas, resilience-based public policy will be elucidated which is a broad, flexible, and multifaceted framework for actions for resilient societies.
