In this seminar, Professor Jonathan Joseph will discuss his book Varieties of Resilience. The book argues that resilience discourse fits with an Anglo-Saxon, neoliberal approach to governance, but that this varies across different sectors and different countries, with other political, institutional and cultural influences shaping the way that resilience is interpreted and understood.
