New article on responsible resilience

20 Jun 2023

The concept of resilience is often positioned as a solution to social challenges, notably the unfolding climate crisis. In this article, Benedikt Fecher, Ali Aslan Gümüsay, Stephan Bohn and Anna Jobin discuss that resilience on its own is insufficient without accountability. They argue that we need to broaden the notion of resilience to entail both recovery and renewal, a bouncing back but also a moving forward. If resilience is to act as a paradigm for change, they suggest that it ought not be conceived of as a reaction, but as a deliberate action.
