Abstract
This article presents a methodology which evaluates the seismic risk from a holistic perspective, that is, it takes into account the expected physical damage and also the conditions related to social fragility and lack of resilience, which favour the second order effects when a hazard event strikes an urban centre. Indicators are used in order to capture favourable conditions for direct physical impacts, as well as indirect and, at times, intangible impacts of hazard events. In the case of Barce...
