Vol. 2 No. 2 (2022): Resilience Solutions: from Managing Economic and Urban Resources to Technology Adoption
Economic resilience is a complex, multifaceted phenomenon that demonstrates the ability to withstand or recover from shocks at all levels of society. An economy's existing structural, operational and organisational conditions initially shape the inherent and adaptive levels of resilience. Adaptive levels of economic resilience, however, enhance the capacity within the society to be more productive, resourceful, and creative while dealing with change, and it can be considered as the ability to renew and create new pathways to deal with adversity. Therefore, enhancing economic resilience requires flexible, divergent and creative solutions. Accordingly, articles published in this issue collectively look at the extensiveness of the concept of resilience through multiple lenses and review a range of complementary ideas to show how resilience can be achieved or improved in different sectors of the economy. At the same time, each paper maintains conceptual distinctiveness and explanatory value to their field.
