Urban Resilience in Action? The Case of Tottenham (London, UK).
Martin Stumpler was Visiting Researcher at the University of Westminster in early spring 2014. As part of his doctoral research project on urban resilience, he has conducted a case study of Tottenham, London, where the English riots of 2011 originated. In this blog, Martin considers how resilience might best be understood from a socio-political perspective – using a neo-institutional framework – and reflects on Tottenham’s recovery process to date.
This doctoral project is supported by the Leibniz-Dresden Graduate School (Dresden, Germany); it is supervised by Professor Karl Lenz, Institute of Sociology, Technical University Dresden, and Professor Simon Joss, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Westminster, London.
