Critical Infrastructure Resilience

 

A suitable concept for urban governance in the Digital Age?

By analyzing the concept of critical infrastructure resilience from different disciplinary angles it will discuss its innovative potentials and possible shortcomings.

 

The aim of the special session is to assess the concept of critical infrastructure resilience and related challenges for urban governance in the Digital Age. By analyzing the concept of critical infrastructure resilience from different disciplinary angles it will discuss its innovative potentials and possible shortcomings. The panel will elucidate which knowledge or concepts already exist or might be utilized in order to cope with related challenges in urban governance under the condition of ongoing digitization and interrelatedness of infrastructural systems.
Albeit very prominent in both, academic research and practitioner’s agendas, resilience of infrastructure is often like a “black box” and needs much concretization. Although everyone agrees that infrastructures should be resilient, it is hard to define what resilience means, which infrastructures are critical, how digitization changes the game and, above all, what that means for the future development of governance of urban infrastructures.
