Interdisciplinary in its approach, with expert contributors from diverse backgrounds, Resilience and Regional Development brings to light the significance of multiple dimensions of resilience and its implications for the economy.

Using a spectrum of analytical tools and a diverse range of geographical case studies to draw multi-faceted conclusions with practical value, chapters delve into the current dynamic and complex context in which many regions evolve. The book focuses on key subjects such as the
concept of resilience, the negative effects generated by global shocks, systemic risks and vulnerabilities, and recovery and shock mitigation mechanisms. It also investigates the relevance of actionable regional initiatives in the spatial development process and how these enable a connection between decision-makers, places and people.

The insightful case studies will be a useful resource for scholars in the field of regional science, international economics, growth and regional development, as well as researchers looking to expand their knowledge of resilience approaches. Students and practitioners interested in the implementation of regional policies will also find this book informative and practical.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book shows how the concept of resilience is relevant when studying space and sustainability. The individual chapters cover a broad range of topics. Therefore, this book ought to be very useful for researchers interested in learning about the scope of resilience, as an organizing principle, in regional science.’
