Developing the concept of poverty and resilience


"This chapter focuses on an elaborated understanding of the concept of social resilience and its potential to enrich research on poverty and social policy. The history of this concept is shown by tracing its development from a psychological, ecosystemic and socio-spatial perspective - focusing on spatial and social limitations of resilience. The current approach of social resilience derives from this background and emphases resilience as a dynamic process, embedded in social and institutional structures. Arising from this discussion, several elements of a new definition of social resilience are presented. Social resilience, especially within the context of poverty, is based on different sources, such as available common goods, reliable networks or civil society organisations. Our results show that the impact of social resilience is highly preconditioned, relates to different characteristics across our respondents and needs support of the welfare state and charity organisations to fully exploit its potential."
