Abstract:

The literature on disaster and/or risk management makes frequent references to community consultation, engagement and recovery, but the terms are used rather loosely and there is little to suggest that the rhetoric is supported by an analysis of practical experience in a diversity of contexts. To make matters worse, there tend to be high turnover rates for people doing disaster management and response work and new people may have little opportunity to learn from past experiences. This book includes an early chapter on the meaning of community in the contemporary world based on an extensive review of sociological literature on the topic. It suggests a need to work with a dynamic understanding of community formation that is particularly relevant when people experience unforeseen challenges and traumatic experiences.
