Resilience and Unemployment

Edited by: Asmund Aamaas, William J.F. Keenan, Clemens Sedmak, Linda van der Zijden

This book contains contributions from the conference Salzburger Anstosse 2010 that was devoted to the multidisciplinary exploration of resilience and unemployment. Resilience is a universal phenomenon, albeit it is differentially distributed within the human species in terms of its modes of expression and effects. One might refer to it as a fundamental element in the adaptive survival make-up of persons and social groups. The book contains a range of illustrations of resilient adaptation in the context of unemployment, one of the fundamental problems of our time. (Series: Perspectives on Social Ethics - Vol. 4)
