Martin Stumpler was Visiting Researcher at the University of Westminster in early spring 2014. As part of his doctoral research project on urban resilience, he has conducted a case study of Tottenham, London, where the English riots of 2011 originated. In this blog, Martin considers how resilience might best be understood from a socio-political perspective - using a neo-institutional framework - and reflects on Tottenham's recovery process to date.
This doctoral project is supported by the Leibniz-Dresden Graduate School (Dresden, Germany); it is supervised by Professor Karl Lenz, Institute of Sociology, Technical University Dresden, and Professor Simon Joss, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Westminster, London.
