Abstract

The consequences of disaster can take many forms; and relocation adds particular complexities to community recovery. Relocation, as is mostly intended, is to avoid or reduce physical susceptibility to future disasters, however, it can also create social and cultural challenges for relocated communities. The present study investigated the communities and their members, which were relocated following the 2010 eruption of the Merapi volcano in Indonesia. The present study aimed to explore the consequences of relocation for sense of community and connection to place.
