Handbook on Regional Economic Resilience

Edited by Gillian Bristow and Adrian Healy, School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University, UK

This Handbook provides a collection of high quality contributions on the state of the art in current debates around the concept of regional economic resilience. It provides critical contributions from leading authors in the field, and captures both key theoretical debates around the meaning of resilience, its conceptual framing and utility, as well as empirical interrogation of its key determinants in different international contexts.

‘Resilience is now a significant concept that helps us explain why regions can weather economic shocks. This Handbook draws together a team of leading scholars, exploring the role and impact of shocks on the economic development trajectories of regions. It represents an excellent gateway for those seeking to understand the theories, measurement and analysis of regional economic resilience.’
– Robert Huggins, Cardiff University, UK
