We conduct comparative gender analysis of resilience to disasters and crises, with a particular focus on Japan. Similarities and differences with Germany are of particular interest, and references to Southern and Northern European countries are made as well. Relations between aspects of social exclusion and inclusion, financial and economic crises or disaster risks are taken into consideration to clarify total effects of governance on livelihood security systems.
