Abstract: This paper examines the reverberations of SARS in Hong Kong from the perspective of emerging systemic risks. An analysis of the contribution of local civil society, in particular that of the social work profession, during the crisis suggests that emerging risks demand that civil societies take a more active role in reducing vulnerability and maintaining resilience. Recommendations are made for government and civil society leaders.
