About the book

The word "crisis" can show up anywhere, anytime - it can be an acute urgency or a long-term response; it can happen at an individual level to a global scale. It is an interdisciplinary word that takes into account geographical, demographical, religious, social, and climate differences, and, by how it is managed, consequently, can have a difference in its results. We have seen how seemingly far-away issues became "my problem" in the past.

The Subprime Mortgage Crisis affected a credit crash in the international financial market. The Fukushima nuclear power plant accident threatened health problems of the Asian countries, while the radioactivity problem remains an international crisis. The Syrian Civil War, from the country's internal economic recession, job disruptions, poor harvests affected by climate change, has raised a large refugee migration crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced our community, from our small family group to a global scale, to adapt to unprecedented events to the continuing instability, anxiety, and uncertainty in our lives. There is a potential crisis with personal information or identity due to the misuse or insecurity of the data management. At the core of all, these seemingly unrelated types of crises are the resultant risk and burden of consequences that can affect all individuals.

The purpose of this book is to provide the readers with an understanding of the characteristics of the crisis itself, recognize the wide range and multi-layer of the crisis from a real situation, give ideas on how to minimize the damage, and find ways to increase resilience in the future. To adapt to the rapidly and diversely changing world, the necessary experience and appropriate management for all kinds of crisis issues will be discussed as well. At the same time, it is intended to suggest elements such as verified scientific and empirical knowledge and applicable technologies; more effective risk management operation; modeling of the risks, manuals, management plans, and strategies.
