Get lost framing Urban Resilience? Don’t worry, this section could help you in better understanding this multifaced concept

We developed this brief list of references framing a bit the main contributions that can help you broadening the concept of urban resilience, and make clearer its multifaced nature. After different brainstorming and literature reviews, our multidisciplinary team decided to propose you such list selecting the most representative, clear and exhaustive papers from different disciplines. Obviously, this section is periodically revisited and up-dated, but don’t hesitate in sending us suggestions if you think we miss some key articles.
