The Centre for the Study of Resilience (CSR): what, why, so what and now what?

 

South Africa is a veritable living laboratory to study resilience. Resilience presupposes (i) the presence of substantial challenges, (ii) processes of adapting to these adversities, and (iii) better than expected given highly challenged settings. The substantial challenges are more than evident in an unequal. Innovative adaptations are visible and amidst many instances of responses that are negative, there are examples of positive outcomes despite cumulative and chronic risk. The CSR distil knowledge on resilience in seven UP Faculties and fourteen academic departments and/or centres. In a Global South space it is thus necessary to have evidence of positive outcomes in relation to inequality, social exclusion, diversity, postcolonial transformation and social justice.
