About this book

This open access book brings together scholars in the fields of management, public policy, regional studies, and organization theory around the concept of resilience. The aim is to provide a more holistic understanding of the complex phenomenon of resilience from a multi-sectorial, cross-national, and multidisciplinary perspective. The book facilitates a conversation across diverse disciplinary specializations and empirical domains. The authors contribute both to theory testing and theory development and provide key empirical insights useful for societies, organizations, and individuals experiencing disruptive pressures, not least in the context of a post-COVID-19 world. Diverse chapters are held together by a clear organization of the volume across levels of analysis (resilience in organizations and societies) and by an original perspective on resilience derived from an extended review, by the editors, of the existing literature and knowledge gaps, according to which each of the individual chapter contributions is positioned and connected to.

Reviews

“Resilience is not just a buzzword, but a fundamental ingredient of the cultural shift we need to address the challenges of the 21st Century and take the world onto a sustainable development path. This book provides an excellent framework to design innovative policies and strategies to build a less vulnerable and more resilient socioeconomic system.” (Enrico Giovannini, Italian Economist and Statistician, University of Rome, Italy, and Italian Minister of Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility (2021-))“Resilience in Organizations and Societies moves forward the notion that organizational and societal resilience are interconnected. An important book that sets the agenda for future thinking and research on the varieties of ways that we think about resilience. Filled with engaging examples and built on a strong conceptual foundation, this is a must read for academics and practitioners interested in the interdisciplinary study of resilience at all levels, individual, organizational, and societal.” (Christopher Kayes, Professor of Management, The George Washington University, School or Business, USA, and author of Organizational Resilience: How Learning Sustains Organizations in Crisis, Disaster, and Breakdown (2015))

“This timely book Towards Resilient Organizations and Societies adds a much needed cross-sectoral and multi-disciplinary perspective to the field and offers an exciting collection of chapters that examine resilience both at organizational and societal levels. A worthwhile read for academics and practitioners!” (Martina Linnenluecke, Director, Centre for Corporate Sustainability and Environmental Finance, Macquarie Business School, Macquarie University, Australia)
