The fourth Åre Risk Event took place in Åre, Sweden, on June 14–16 2016.

The topic of this year’s conference was:

Resilience – Opportunities and Challenges for Societal Crisis Management and Individual Safety

Over the last 20 years, resilience has been established in civil security and emergency preparedness as well as a number of other areas. The conference did in various ways shed light on how this has happened and what consequences – good and bad – it has had and can have on individuals, local communities and the world globally.

The conference was geared towards participants with an interest in resilience, security, and risk and crisis research / management.
