Governing for Resilience in Vulnerable Places, Hardback Book

Governing for Resilience in Vulnerable Places Hardback

Edited by Elen Maarja Trell, Britta Restemeyer, Melanie M. Bakema, Bettina Van Hoven

Part of the Urban Planning and Environment series

Description

Governing for Resilience in Vulnerable Places provides an overview and a critical analysis of the ways in which the concept `resilience' has been addressed in social sciences research.

In doing so, this edited book draws together state-of-the-art research from a variety of disciplines (i.e. spatial planning, economic and cultural geography, environmental and political sciences, sociology and architecture) as well as cases and examples across different spatial and geographical contexts (e.g. urban slums in India; flood-prone communities in the UK; coastal Japan).

The cases present and explore challenges and potentials of resilience-thinking for practitioners and academics.

As such, Governing for Resilience in Vulnerable Places aims to provide a scientifically robust overview and to generate some conceptual clarity for researchers, students and practitioners interested in the potential of resilience thinking as well as the application of resilience in practice.
