This collaborative inter-institutional and interdisciplinary workshop is concerned to examine and problematize the distinct genealogies and interaction of the  concepts of Resilience, Solidarity, and democratic citizenship with particular focus on the problem of political action or agency. It aims to explore the ways in which community resilience may be associated or contrasted with the mechanisms underpinning social and political solidarity and with new rights claims. A number of related concepts, such as identity, acts of citizenship and political agency, are clearly of relevance in this context.
