Review

“The notion of ‘resilience’ permeates academic and policy dialogue on international development and security, but too often the term is used diffusely, sapping the concept’s power. This important volume fuses a nuanced theoretical understanding of resilience with an empirically rich study of its meaning and relevance in diverse European and Eurasian countries and regional organizations. Its detailed case studies provide a conceptual map of the key strengths and vulnerabilities of the European Union and Eastern Partnership states. At the same time, its authors offer much-needed new insights on how to assess resilience in practice. Both are essential for effective policy action to build more resilient states, societies, and institutions.” This volume will be of great use to scholars and practitioners of development and foreign affairs in Europe, the Eastern Partnership area, and beyond.” (Dr John D. Ciorciari, University of Michigan, US)

“This monograph is an important and timely contribution to the debates on resilience in the policy, and scholarly communities. It While becoming the buzzword of the global governance agenda, resilience is still a rather misunderstood and even misconceived concept, and its potential as an analytic of governance could be lost if not properly researched and debated. This volume does just that, and is a must for scholars and practitioners working to make governance more adaptive and sustainable.” (Professor Elena Korosteleva, University of Kent, UK)

“Europe is in a state of flux. Not only do we face a weakening of the pillars of the EU caused mainly by Euro-scepticism and Brexit, but also new attempts to expand the range of associated countries. This volume offers a wealth of new insights into the hurdles and opportunities of the ‘European way of life’. This book is a rich source of novel information and original perspectives on a resilient Europe.” (Professor Peter Nijkamp, Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, The Netherlands)
“This volume by Rouet and Pascariu is a comprehensive treatment of the subject of resilience in European Union (EU) foreign policy as it relates to the Eastern partner, and a must-read for scholars and students of the EU, International Relations, practitioners, journalists and the intelligent reader alike.” (Dr. Neil Winn, University of Leeds, UK)
