Community Resilience

We have recently begun to participate in an international project funded by the Rockefeller Foundation on the measurement of community resilience. The project is a new and active collaboration of the LTE lab with researchers at Lund University in Sweden: Astier Almedom, Lennart Olsson, and Per-Olaf Ostergren. Our goals, broadly defined, are to critically review the existing literature on community resilience and develop a set of best indices that might be used in field research along with existing measures and methods for studying individual resilience. We are particularly interested in how individual and community resileince might interact.
