PUBLIC TALK: Building liberal resilience? A critical view from developing Asia
|Building liberal resilience? A critical view from developing Asia
In this public lecture, Jonathan Rigg, Professor of Geography at the National University of Singapore, will argue that 'liberal resilience' plays into a growth-development-resilience 'trap' where economic growth has become a de facto synonym for development and, often, development a synonym for resilience. Drawing on cases around rural Asia the lecture will highlight the incongruities and inconsistencies in the line of logic.
