I define social resilience as a "social phenomenon characterized by vulnerable individuals’ or groups’ social experiences and social practices in the face of political, economic, cultural, and social (PECS) environmental changes and challenges. Individuals or groups going through this experience learn to re-examine their lives in the new context and shape their adaptive and transformational capabilities (Qamar, 2023:3)". Hence, I see social resilience fostered by togetherness (of people and instituions). My scholarly journey to conceptualize social resilience led me to design this website where I post articles, talks, and other relevant content to unfold the concept in its contextual depth. This website is an online space providing interesting readings for a better insight into the concept and its theoretical framing in research and practice. I dream a world where human are valued, included, and supported to lighten the lives together by benefiting each other through sociability and connectedness. I believe in lighting up the lives together. The art of living together is not hard to master.
