Abstract

There is a growing awareness of the (potential) tensions be-tween urban resilience and justice. This paper provides a systematic account of justice issues in the context of urban resilience to natural disasters. On the one hand, I will demonstrate that the underlying understanding of resilience – as bouncing back/forward – shapes our understanding of the interplay between justice and resilience. On the other hand, I will argue that we should not only avoid unjust outcomes in the process of building resilience but also consider resilience engineering as a way of promoting urban justice.
