Abstract

This presentation introduces a novel research design: an holistic, multi-site and processoriented action research designed to empower individuals and communities to build up their capacity for coping with natural disasters. This approach will seek both generic and specific solutions, applicable to hazards more broadly as well as the identification of solutions that appear to be hazard specific. In so doing the research design takes a multi-level perspective and investigates the influence of individuals within communities, and their reciprocal interactions. Based on a synergy of four theoretical frameworks paradigms (i.e., salutogenic paradigm, symbolic interactionism, narrative theory, systems theory), the research will merge three qualitative methodologies (i.e., grounded theory, multi-side ethnography, multi-side action research) to inform both theory and measurement of relevant constructs.
