  • Building Joint Crisis Management Capacity? Comparing Civil Security
           Systems in 22 European Countries
    • Authors: Sanneke Kuipers; Arjen Boin, Raphael Bossong, Hendrik Hegemann
      Pages: 1 - 21
      Abstract: A series of transboundary crises and disasters has increased pressure on European states to cooperate in the realm of crisis and disaster management. The European Union has taken an active role to connect national capacities of member states. Little is known, however, about the compatibilities of national civil protection systems. This article attempts to fill that void. We draw on a comparative study on 22 European states and highlight similarities as well as patterns of variation. We explore how different states define the role of government during crises and disasters; we map the administrative structures and procedures in place to provide civil security. We also assess the quality of these systems. Our findings reveal that administrative responsibilities, legal frameworks and operational practices differ markedly, as the national systems are rooted in national contexts and historical experiences. In the light of our findings, we contemplate what role the EU can play to build joint transboundary crisis management capacity.

  • Signaled and Silenced Aspects of Nuclear Safety: A Critical Evaluation of
           International Nuclear Safety Thinking
    • Pages: 22 - 43
      Abstract: This article provides a critical analysis of safety‐related assumptions and practices in international nuclear safety regulation, together with an overview of those aspects of safety that have been either signaled or silenced. The data consist of safety reports from the IAEA, OECD NEA and Western European Nuclear Regulators Association (WENRA), as well as from the national stress tests reports of the United Kingdom and Finland. For theoretical tools, we draw on the concept of a dominant co‐operative scheme, and on some parts of Luhmann's Theory of Social Systems. The method is content analysis. We argue that the prevailing thoughts on safety by the international nuclear safety organizations, which are based on the field of engineering sciences' understanding of safety, affected what was learned from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident and the way the stress tests were conducted. Moreover, the learning, even though it is still ongoing, has been constrained by some emphasized aspects of safety, which tend to ignore other relevant aspects of safety. Therefore, the stress tests and teachings from Fukushima failed to provide as many improvements in nuclear safety as could have been possible if a broader analysis of the Fukushima nuclear accident was used.

  • “This Was No Act of God:” Disaster, Causality, and Politics
    • Authors: Graham G. Dodds
      Pages: 44 - 68
      Abstract: This article explores the evolution of human understandings of putatively natural disasters in three respects. First, it contends that human conceptions of natural disasters have dramatically changed over time, from placing causality and responsibility with God and religion, to nature and science, to humanity and politics. Second, it tracks part of that broad development by examining how the legal category “Act of God” has become increasingly archaic and irrelevant in modern jurisprudence. Third, it outlines the implications of this development for more robust conceptions of human agency and politics, and it considers the causes of the changing conceptions of disaster.

  • Information, Resources, and Management Priorities: Agency Outreach and
           Mitigation of Wildfire Risk in the Western United States
    • Authors: Deserai A. Crow; Lydia A. Lawhon, Elizabeth Koebele, Adrianne Kroepsch, Rebecca Schild, Juhi Huda
      Pages: 69 - 90
      Abstract: States in the American West are experiencing significant population growth and exurban development, in addition to a longer fire season and a changing climate. These factors contribute to the increasing difficulty of managing wildfire in the Wildland–Urban Interface. Using data collected through a survey of fire professionals, this research investigates the strategies that agencies use to promote wildfire mitigation on private property within the WUI, fire professionals’ sense of the effectiveness of those strategies, and support among fire professionals for various regulatory approaches to wildfire mitigation. The findings indicate that fire professionals are keenly aware of the constraints imposed by the political context and acceptability of some tools that they could use to promote more aggressive mitigation on private property. Recommendations based on these findings suggest that fire professionals should consider capitalizing on citizen network approaches to outreach in order to build trust between agency personnel and homeowners and to cope with limited support for regulatory mandates for wildfire mitigation.

  • Data Sample Selection Issues for Bankruptcy Prediction
    • Authors: Shaonan Tian; Yan Yu, Ming Zhou
      Pages: 91 - 116
      Abstract: Bankruptcy prediction is of paramount interest to both academics and practitioners. This paper devotes special care to an important aspect of the bankruptcy prediction modeling: Data sample selection issue. To investigate the effect of the different data selection methods, three models are adopted: Logistic regression model, Neural Networks (NNET), and Support Vector Machines (SVM), which have recently gained some popularity in the applications. A Monte Carlo simulation study and an empirical analysis on an updated bankruptcy database are conducted to explore the effect of different data sample selection methods. By comparing the out‐of‐sample predictive performances, we conclude that if forecasting the probability of bankruptcy is of interest, complete data sampling technique provides more accurate results. However, if a binary bankruptcy decision or classification is desired, choice based sampling technique may still be suitable. In particular, choice‐based data samples validated by NNET and SVM can capture more correct predictions of bankruptcy observations, and provide lower asymmetric misclassification rate. In addition, for different choice‐based data samples, it is essential to adjust the cut‐off probability. An appropriate choice of cut‐off probability depends on the specification of the cost ratio between the Type I error and Type II error. The proposed optimal cut‐off probability in this work is a function of the data sample selection methods and the cost ratio.

  • Evaluating Effective Public Participation in Disaster Management and
           Climate Change Adaptation: Insights From Northern Ghana Through a
           User‐Based Approach
    • Pages: 117 - 143
      Abstract: Public participation in disaster risk management and climate change adaptation program is acknowledged by researchers and practitioners, yet its actualization largely remains a dream. In principle, there have been several claims in favor of adopting community participation, albeit these remain anecdotal without empirical substance. The few apparent success stories are seldom scaled up or replicated, compelling most enthusiastic practitioners and planners become skeptical about the use of public participation concept in disaster management strategies. This calls for a comprehensive and systematic evaluation of participatory approaches to guide practitioners in their quest for meaningful local community participation in disaster risk management. Based on our case study in disaster prone villages in Northern Ghana, our research contributes to these emerging literature on risks by examining the process and outcome‐based factors that ensure effective public participation. The inimitability of our study does not only lie in its pioneering attempt to systematically identify effective public participation factors for climate change, but unlike other participatory approaches where success is defined by the researchers and policy makers, ours relies on local community themselves to define the desired processes for and outcomes of effective public participation.
