Nexus between risk and resilience: A review of recent research on integrated conceptualization and characterization and presentation of its new application
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis reviews recent research on the nexus between risk and resilience. This research relates to conceptualization and characterization of risk and resilience, with implications for risk and resilience analysis and management. The review highlights the presentation of a framework developed for the integrated understanding and study of risk and resilience. It points to a development discussed in the literature showing separate camps for risk and resilience analysis and management, and how this development can be confronted. The thesis also presents and discusses a new application of this framework, starting from a deterministic model of resilience studied in the literature. By adding uncertainty to the model, new insights are provided. The uncertainty is described through probabilities as well as judgments of the strength of knowledge supporting these probabilities. A simple example from an offshore industry is used to illustrate the application.
