About the Journal
The twenty-first century has witnessed widespread global financial, and public health crises including, but not limited to, frequent large-scale natural disasters, the Dot-Com bubble crisis in the early 2000s, SARS pandemic, Global Financial Crisis (GFC), and COVID-19 pandemic. These crises adversely affected business, communities, and economies globally, resulting in social and economic disruptions. In a global-scale emergency such as the COVID-19 pandemic, even strong economies demonstrated a lack of resilience and adaptive capacity. Equally, for businesses and communities, the impacts of these shocks have evidenced the need to pivot thinking, repurpose resources and be resilient. The effect of these crises is extended to industries, occupations, and livelihoods. Moreover, traditional methods of addressing external risks often preclude weaker economies from recognising their underlying vulnerabilities and economic weak-spots. Hence, the call for creative and innovative solutions is critical and imperative. This journal seeks to fill this gap through research and thinking that builds knowledge, understanding and insight into solutions that address the building of resilient economies.
Therefore, the Journal of Resilient Economies (JRE) allows for multidisciplinary contributions with local to global perspectives. Accordingly, the principal areas covered by JRE are:
- Resilience and business continuity
- Organisational resilience
- Economic resilience (at micro, meso, or macro levels)
- Industry resilience
- Occupational resilience
- Regional, urban, and rural resilience
- Community resilience
