The Society for Critical Studies of Crisis (SCSC) is the culmination of more than two years of inter-disciplinary work at Lund University supported by the Pufendorf Institute through an Advanced Study Group and a CRISIS Theme. These initiatives were a response to urgent calls for political action and ethical calls for more inclusive and efficient models for crisis prevention, mitigation, and restoration.
The SCSC is a non-profit Lund University-based association which was launched at the Symposium on Critical Explorations of Crisis: Politics, Precariousness, and Potentialities in 2019. It provides a platform for members’ engagement, both individuals and institutions with an interest in critical crisis studies. Membership in the SCSC is free. An annual general meeting will be held.
