structuralproperties but are also viewed in a spatial and procedural context. Thus, the spatial units constituting the landscape mosaic are perceived as “budget-related functional units (‘process units’)” ( Mosimann/Köhler/Poppe 2001 : 37), which are integrated into a lateral process structure. The involvement of neighbourhood effects between the respective process units not only allows the mapping of spatial function overlaps, but also the transition from an isolated consideration of individual functions related to discrete area units to a context-oriented, spatially

.2 Resilience and new institutionalism
Understanding urban resilience only in terms of structuralproperties is inadequate when one assumes that the world is socially constructed. If we perceive socio-economic resilience as being linked to those properties of the system that maintain the success and continuous existence of the system, new institutionalism could possibly help to focus research agendas in urban and regional studies. We could see resilience as a long term systemic 'capacity', closely related to an institutional environment being supportive of the constant
