The coronavirus crisis has kept the world on guard since late 2019. It is a systemic crisis that began with a pandemic and step by step also generated an international economic and social crisis as well as a series of political crises of both domestic and foreign policy nature. In their interrelation and mutual reinforcement, these crises have generated a global "bundled crisis". Due to its multi-dimensional characteristic, an evolution of existing sectorial resilience concepts towards multi-sectorial multi-resilience is necessary since most of confined or specialized resilience concepts have proven insufficient. This is the main thesis of the new book by Roland Benedikter, Co-Head of the Center for Advanced Studies, and resilience researcher Karim Fathi: "The Coronavirus Crisis and Its Teachings: Steps Towards Multi-Resilience" (BRILL 2022). The Coronavirus crisis has shown that crises are becoming more multidimensional as well as inter-and trans-disciplinary, requiring the evolution from straightforward resilience to more complex practices of multi-resilience. Exploring and substantiating this thesis is what the book is dedicated to.

In the online event "Lessons from the Coronavirus Crisis: From Resilience to Multi-Resilience", the basic ideas of the book will be presented and discussed, providing space for individual examples of local resilience experiences. Within the ambit of the multi-resilience discussion aspects of management, gender, generations, and systems, as well as of a reform of globalization, i.e. of "Re-Globalization" and "Glocalization", will be critically evaluated.

The question is: To what extent can the 2019-22 Coronavirus crisis make societies more multi-resilient and, despite all the suffering, generate progress in the long-term perspective? Answers are provided by the two authors Roland Benedikter and Karim Fathi as well as by Donya Gilan, Head of the department "Resilience and Society" at the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research Mainz, and Giulia Isetti, Maximilian Walder and Linda Ghirardello, researchers at the Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research.
