The history of the Balkan Peninsula of the last
two centuries is marked by deep transformations and
upheavals. The emergence and disappearance of states, ethnic
conflicts and wars, changes of political systems, economic
crises, migration movements and natural disasters are the
more visible of such upheavals. Most of them have been
experienced as deep crises that forced people to adapt to
often radically new situations. All too often crisis
management became a permanent way of life.

The papers focus on the cultures of crisis, on
the reactions of societies or individuals to them: on their
impact on everyday life, on peoples‘ strategies of coping,
on the processes of adaptation, and on peoples‘ attitudes.
