Resilience

Whether climate change, refugee movements, poverty, scarcity of resources, urbanization or stress at work - resilience is the buzzword of our time. The present volume outlines the potential and limits of this term and reflects current conceptualizations and applications. What is new is that the different understandings of resilience are not only presented, but also related to one another in an interdisciplinary manner. The aim is to critically question and further develop the resilience discourse. This discussion stimulates the formulation of normative questions, the answers to which are important in order to obtain new perspectives on future transformations and changes.
