Overcoming the Dualism between Adaptation and Adaptability in Regional Economic Resilience

Although regional resilience has come into fashion to understand how regional economies recover after shocks, it has suffered from dualistic thinking, which undermines its explanatory power. This article addresses this problem by developing a conceptual framework of uneven resilience of regions in a long-term perspective, on the basis of a comparative empirical analysis of adaptation and adaptability processes in two typical Chinese mining regions. This framework defines adaptation and adaptability in an evolutionary and mutually cohesive way that overcomes the traditional dualism. It also demonstrates how variations of adaptation-adaptability relationships can result in uneven regional resilience.
