Resilience after an earthquake : a focus on Kumamoto, Japan and Christchurch, New Zealand

Abstract : How does a city and its people recover from a shock? This is the question that this thesis is based on. The shock here is the earthquake and in order to answer this question 2 cities are chosen and compared: Kumamoto, a Japanese city that experienced a destructive earthquake in 2016 and Christchurch in 2011. The Japanese country is known for its mastery in risk and disaster management. The aim is to look at the failures and successes of both countries to draw inspiration from them in the event of natural disasters, including earthquakes.
