Resilience is increasingly discussed as a key concept across many fields of international policymaking from sustainable development and climate change, insecurity, conflict and terrorism to urban and rural planning, international aid provision and the prevention of and responses to natural and man-made disasters. Edited by leading academic authorities from a number of disciplines, this is the first handbook to deal with resilience as a new conceptual approach to understanding and addressing a range of interdependent global challenges.
The Handbook is divided into nine sections:
- Introduction: contested paradigms of resilience;
- the challenges of resilience;
- governing uncertainty;
- resilience and neoliberalism;
- environmental concerns and climate change adaptation;
- urban planning;
- disaster risk reduction and response;
- international security and insecurity;
- the policy and practices of international development.
Highlighting how resilience-thinking is increasingly transforming international policy-making and government and institutional practices, this book will be an indispensable source of information for students, academics and the wider public interested in resilience, international relations and international security.
