Abstract

This paper, building on governmental financial resilience literature, and using data from a survey of over 600 local governments in Germany, Italy, and the UK, looks at the role that external shocks, anticipatory capacities, and associated perceived vulnerabilities, play in determining different organizational response strategies (i.e., “bouncing back” vs. “bouncing forward” strategies) at times of crisis. In the face of shocks, higher perceived vulnerabilities will especially be associated with bouncing back strategies, whereas the presence of anticipatory capacity will be associated with bouncing forward strategies.
