Societal Security and Crisis Management
Governance Capacity and Legitimacy
Editors: Lægreid, Per, Rykkja, Lise H. (Eds.)

This book studies governance capacity and governance legitimacy for societal security and crisis management. It highlights the importance of building organizational capacity by focusing on the coordination of public resources and underscores the relevance of legitimacy by emphasizing the importance of public perceptions, attitudes, and trust vis-à-vis government arrangements for crisis management.

The authors explore several cases and identify relevant dimensions concerning performance, capacity and legitimacy across different countries. It is an ideal volume for audiences interested in public administration, public policy, crisis management and security studies.

The book is published by Palgrave.
(It is possible to buy single book-chapters.)
