Research in the context of KONTIKAT

Research often examines the perspective of those who are affected by a crisis. In the BMBF Junior Research Group “KONTIKAT” we investigate this research focus with the emergency stockage study in order to understand how well the population of Siegen is prepared for crisis situations and which food and objects that can be helpful in a crisis are stocked. In order to focus on actors in crisis situations, my dissertation deals with the perspective of emergency forces. Interviews will be conducted and analyzed with the help of qualitative methods of social research. My thesis empirically carries out the attainment of routines in various crisis situations, which in my opinion leads to a professionalism of emergency forces.
