Abstract and Keywords
Over the last decade the notion of resilience has attracted increasing attention from economic geographers, as part of an interest in the impact of shocks and disruptions to the process and pattern of regional development. But increasing popularity is no guarantee of profundity, and the application of the idea in economic geography raises a range of issues and questions, concerning not only the meaning and conceptualization of the notion of resilience in an economic-geographical setting, but also about the relationship of both shocks and resilience to the very process of uneven regional development itself. Clarifying these definitional, conceptual, and analytical issues is necessary given that the notion has assumed growing prominence in urban and regional policy-making arenas.
