For some, this resembles an image of 'uncharted waters' that calls for creative experimentation, for new inclusive democratic approaches and for thinking through potentialities ( Hillier 2010 : 472 f.; Rauws 2017 : 32 f.). However, there is a lack of adequate means of overcoming existing differences in society and experimenting with truly alternative ways of thinking. This article ponders on a reflexive and role-based approach to assembling conceptual ideas for joint
Analysing Key Socio-Technical Systems for the Vulnerability and Resilience of Cities
Marc Wolfram and Rico Vogel
infostructures for the identification and assessment of vulnerabilities, and for the adaptive and transformative capacity of cities.
To address these issues, we first delineate how we understand the concepts of "vulnerability" and "resilience" in the context of urban development, deriving the basic criteria for assessing the role of infostructures ( Sect. 2 ). We then draw on the concepts of socio-technical systems and infostructures in order to establish a framework for analysis ( Sect. 3 ). From this, key technology issues and choices ( Sect. 4 ) and current regimes
; Bruns 2010 ). Recent studies have, however, shown that Marine Spatial Planning takes place in a contested context of multiple functions, perceptions, values and framings of marine issues with significant implications for the development of planning and management strategies ( Gee 2010 ; Ritchie/Ellis 2010 ; Kannen 2014 ). Critical contributions to the growing literature on Marine Spatial Planning from academic spatial planning scholars have however argued for in-depth reflexive engagement with Marine Spatial Planning from a social science perspective ( Peel
