Labour market impacts are often the first to arise and notice in the wake of major fluctuations in the spatial economy. In an era marked by insecurity, the quest for understanding the tidal movements of labour markets became more salient than ever. To this aim, this special issue exploits the resilience framework to provide a more holistic view on the causes and effects of labour markets perturbations, as well as to find ways of buffering shocks while easing adaptation and recovery. The papers included in this special issue look at different types of shocks (multi-shock) manifested in various geographical areas (multi-spatial), at different territorial scales (multi-level), while employing more methodological algorithms (multi-method) to provide a more refined understanding of labour market resilience.
