Short summary
This paper focuses on interactions between society and its volcanic environment at Mt. Bromo from a human–volcano-system perspective. The results show that the local population not only is exposed to negative volcanic impacts but also enjoys benefits and opportunities. Following this perspective, the concept of risk must be expanded from a pure negative connotation to a more holistic, open view of risk which addresses both potentially positive and negative aspects of the uncertain future.
