Preface

The world faces more and more insecurities and challenges than ever before. A greatly increasing number of uncertainties and catastrophes the world has had to confront are redefining the way countries approach disaster and crisis management. Current times necessitate greater effort to understand risks and avert crises. In particular, the cultural fusion of the West and the East is most likely to help serve humanity to achieve security and relative freedom in a vulnerable, risk-filled society.

The International Journal of Risk Analysis and Crisis Response (JRACR), an official publication of Society for Risk Analysis – China (SRA-China), publishes high-quality papers concerning risk analysis and crisis response. This publication facilitates the promotion and rapid development of risk analysis theory and application worldwide, thus helping to reduce the effects of natural and man-made disasters and to avoid major economic and social crises. The published papers provide the necessary risk analysis theory and response techniques to ensure healthy development of society and of the economy.
