The Urban Resilience Research Network announces the publication of a new essay within its section Urban Resilience Viewpoints. Prof. STEPHAN BARTHEL (UNIVERSITY OF GÄVLE, STOCKHOLM UNIVERSITY AND STOCKHOLM RESILIENCE CENTRE) in his article titled "A SOCIAL-ECOLOGICAL RESEARCH LENS ON URBAN RESILIENCE" analyzes the plethora of concepts that scholars used over the years to study the city as a living eco-system. Dr. Barthel argues that is finally time to “re-unite the two dominant lines of thought for a more holistic understanding about urban resilience: the socio-technological line of thought with the social-ecological line.”
