Resilient communities in our cities: Critical perspectives

Resilient communities in our cities: Critical perspectives

Playing tracks by

Liza Griffin, Mark Pelling (King's College), Amanda Smith (Nottingham Trent University), John Twigg (UCL) and Cassidy Johnson (UCL).

In academic and policy circles the idea of resilience has been connected to that of both ‘community’ and ‘city’. Urban communities in the Global South and North are increasingly asked to be self-sufficient and resilient in the face of apparently mounting and imminent crises such as flooding and terror threats.
This panel explores what is at stake practically and conceptually when community resilience is pursued as an urban governance strategy. It articulates some of the values attached to it and draw out emerging tensions and dilemmas involved in its deployment, asking how the spaces and politics of urban communities get transformed when resilience is used to govern.
