Abstract [en]

In this report, we present the final results of our study on experiences and requirements for a community approach involving social groups in crisis preparedness and response. Included are the views of representatives of local authorities, voluntary organizations and the general public on risk and crisis management and public empowerment. First, the background and aim of the study are introduced, followed by a summary of the previous research. Next, the methods and the procedures employed in the interview studies are described, along with ethical considerations. We then report and analyze the research findings as well future research possibilities.

The main results of this study indicate specific areas of importance for the understanding and development of community approaches that include social groups in crisis preparedness and response. These areas are Collaboration, Formal and informal practices, General ability and specific competence, Dynamics between collective efforts and individual self-help, Aspects of education and empowerment, Traditional communication versus digital media, Individual involvement, and Age and generation. A general observation is also that the scope and depth of collaboration between public and municipal emerge, actors and voluntary organizations differ widely depending on population density and the size and geographical characteristics of the local community. These factors seem to have most impact on how formal the collaboration between the professional and voluntary organizations is and on issues related to resources of different kinds.

We have previously reported on a study of the academic literature on community approaches involving the public in crisis management.
