Abstract

The concept of "vulnerability" is en vogue. Since its emergence in the environmental and social sciences in the 1980s (Chambers 1989) and in geography since the beginning of the 1990s (Watts and Bohle 1993) three areas - ecology, society and technology - have been carved out which are investigated in terms of their vulnerability. It owns its popularity without doubt to the fact that in globalizing and inter-connected, demographically aging and climatically warming world the awareness of a deep vulnerability of regions and their societies has inspired people's minds. - (IfL)
