Symposium date: January 29, 2018
Dr. Daniel Aldrich’s PrepTalk highlights research demonstrating how factors internal to a community are the real drivers of resilience rather than external factors such as outside aid. He breaks down the important role of different types of social capital (bonding, bridging, and linking) and the role each serves to increase community resilience. His PrepTalk provides examples of how communities are innovating to increase social capital.
Dr. Daniel Aldrich is a political science professor and director of the Security and Resilience Program at Northeastern University. He has published four books, including Building Resilience, Social Capital in Post-Disaster Recovery, and more than 40 peer-reviewed articles.
