Abstract

The goal to improve the resilience of social systems - communities and their economies - is increasingly adopted by decision makers. This unique and comprehensive Handbook focuses on the interdependencies of these social systems and the technologies that support them. Special attention is given to the ways in which resilience is conceptualized by different disciplines, how resilience may be assessed, and how resilience strategies are implemented. Case illustrations are presented throughout to aid understanding. 1. Introduction to resilience of socio-technical systems -- 2. Towards a responsible resilience -- 3. The metaphorical processes in the history of the resilience notion and the rise of the ecosystem resilience theory -- 4. Essentials of resilience, revisited -- 5. Overcoming barriers to greater scientific understanding of critical infrastructure resilience -- 6. Resilient systems as a biomimetic guiding concept -- 7. From probabilistic risk analysis to resilience with network science : lessons from the literature and best practice -- 8. On the difference between risk management and resilience management for critical infrastructures -- 9. Resilience and risk governance : current discussion and future action -- 10. Resilience Engineering: chances and challenges for a comprehensive concept -- 11. Analyzing the resilience of a transition : an indicator-based approach for socio-technical systems -- 12. Leveraging government resiliency assessments and related reports : identifying and redressing recurring gaps and systemic barriers through content analysis and cross-case synthesis -- 13. Estimating the cost-effectiveness of resilience to disasters : survey instrument design and refinement of primary data -- 14. Ecological design for urban coastal resilience -- 15. Regime shifts in social-ecological systems -- 16. The reception of the resilience concept in the energy discourse, and genesis of the theory of resilient energy system design -- 17. IT security for functional resilience in energy systems : effect-centric IT security -- 18. Assessing resilience in energy system change through an energy democracy lens -- 19.
