Urban Resilience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

Abstract

Resilience is a booming concept. It has been used in a variety of disciplines and has now also been adopted by planners and urban scholars to analyze how cities cope with vulnerabilities and threats. Engineering resilience and ecological resilience are discussed as early approaches to resilience. Current views on urban resilience emphasize the nonlinear, complex, and unpredictable character of urban systems and pay attention to the normative and political aspects involved in dealing with urban resilience.
