Risk and Resilience, Too

It occurred to me after yesterday’s post on the new WPR feature issue that I never flagged our previous feature issue, Risk and Resilience in the Globalized Age. That was a major oversight on my part, because the two articles — by John Robb (Global Guerillas) here, and by David Steven and Alex Evans (Global Dashboard) here — are among the most thought-provoking I’ve read on the “big” problems facing policymakers today. Better late than never, though, so definitely give them a look. If you’ve seen “resilience” being tossed around and wondered what people were talking about, or if you’re up to date on the topic and would like to know what the top three thinkers in the field have to say, it’s well worth it. All three managed to make some very challenging ideas very accessible.
