Environmental, socio-economical, or sanitary crises constantly question our adaptability as individuals within a community. How can we overcome the present situation? How to mitigate future crises? What role can we, citizens, play in this collective effort? More and more research and international reports point to the key role of human communities, especially at the level of cities, to increase our societal resilience. In this thesis, I therefore investigate some of the mechanisms leading to more community resilience in cities.
This thesis focuses a broadly spread collective action practice which occurs in the urban space, extensively described from the point of view of individual cases or from specific disciplines, with yet no significant attempt to generate a loosely constrained overview of this practice, called the urban commons.
