My research addresses the problem of social and organizational crisis and problems of dis-organization. Crisis – like man-made and natural disasters and incidents but also ‘planned’ disruptions such as urban mega-events – upset society, challenge our critical infrastructures, and make taken-for-granted societal patterns visible. They influence and shake all sorts of organizations, change the relationships between people and their socio-material environments, and have profound consequences for organizational work routines, communication patterns and information sharing/collecting practices. At the same time organizations are supposed to ‘fight’ the crisis, be(come) prepared for the unknown, and form collations with other agencies and local communities. The question then is how the crisis situations affect the social and organizational identities of individuals, the work(space) cultures, the actions of (first response) organizations, and the interactions between organizations and society/citizens.
