Securing Our Future: Resilience in the Twenty First Century

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As the meaning of security has expanded well beyond its simple conception of inter-state war and peace, domestic resilience now falls under its ambit. Events in Britain at the turn of the twenty-first century – such as the fuel strike, foot and mouth crisis and catastrophic flooding – highlighted these new imperatives. Jennifer Cole looks at what has been done to shore up the UK’s institutional architecture for all-hazards response, and what the future might hold.
