Contemporary organizations in the context of crises and extreme events
Disasters, accidents, misconduct, and corporate crimes are recurrent organizational phenomena that have serious consequences. Organizational research that generally investigates such phenomena produces recommendations to analyze, measure, and prevent so that damage is minimized; however, crises and extreme events often occur repeatedly. It raises important questions about how organizations, individuals, and society deal with these events, either to change the context in which they occur or to prepare for their impacts.
Based on the understanding that extreme contexts are environments in which “one or more extreme events are occurring or are likely to occur that may exceed the organization's capacity to prevent and result in an extensive and intolerable magnitude of physical, psychological, or material consequences to – or in close physical or psycho-social proximity to – organization members.” (Hannah et al. 2009, p. 898). With this special edition, we encourage submissions that seek to answer the following questions:
- How are contemporary organizations dealing with crises and extreme events?
- How and what can institutions and society learn from contexts of crisis and extreme events?
- How and what can contemporary organizations learn from organizations that operate in extreme contexts?
