Resilience Reflections and Applications (7.5 ECTS)

This course will reflect on how resilience thinking methods can be applied to social-ecological systems

The course will explore contrasts and similarities between resilience approaches and other approaches to social-ecological systems using a set of case studies. Students will work in groups to apply resilience thinking along with a set of alternative approaches to a case study to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of resilience approaches.

This course will help train students in research methods that they can apply to their own thesis research.

The course runs during the spring term and cannot be studied independently from the SERSD programme.
