Entire sectors, including mining, ship construction, and the steel and textiles industries are going bankrupt or being cut back in size, even though there is nothing to take their place. Hence, it is very important to ask how and whether these regions can cope with structural change and find a way of becoming economically powerful again—in the sense implied in the term resilience.

-term resilience may indeed be interpreted as a discrete phase of long-term evolutionary resilience. The analysis of the external context and internal regional features sets the background for the analysis of the structural and functional aspects of the Pomorskie Region's resilience. The identification of a region's resilience characteristics is the aim of the article. The paper begins by setting out the macroeconomic constraints of regional development in Poland. The analysis of the state-level context of regional development policy is especially important in a post
