7th WANG CENTER SYMPOSIUM
THE COUNTENANCE OF HOPE: TOWARDS AN INTERDISCIPLINARY AND CROSS-CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING OF RESILIENCE
“Resilience”, derived the from Latin resilire, meaning to rebound or recoil, was first used in the early seventeenth century to describe the ability of materials such as wood, iron and bronze to withstand severe loads without breaking. Used now in a wide range of fields including epidemiology, psychology, business, biology and ecological science, public policy, post-disaster recovery and community development, the term has evolved into a concept that describes the capacity to withstand and overcome the stress and devastation related to traumatic events such as violent conflict, forced migration, major epidemics, natural disasters and climate change.
