Resilience, Community, and Resilient Communities: Conditioning Contexts and Collective Action
Chaskin, Robert J.
Child Care in Practice, v14 n1 p65-74 Jan 2008
This article explores the idea of community as it relates to the concept of resilience. It focuses on community both as context (local environments providing a set of risk and protective factors that have an influence on the well-being of community members) and as collective actors that can exhibit resilience in themselves by organizing and acting in response to adversity. Finally, it teases out some implications--both possibilities and limitations--of this framework for social policy and practice.
