Resilience governance; Transitional communities; Diverse stakeholders.


With the vigorous development of urban construction in China at the end of the 20th century, transitional communities have emerged as an important driver of urban economic development. Currently, the drawbacks of transitional communities in the process of modernization are constantly being exposed, prompting numerous reflections from urban leaders, and the transformation and upgrading of transitional communities has become a vital issue. Taking S community in Suzhou City as an example, this article elaborates on its current development status and theoretical basis. Leveraging resilience governance theory and using the pyramid model, the S community is thoroughly analyzed from three levels and six aspects, identifying various problems and proposing countermeasures and suggestions relying on theories of collaborative governance, digital sharing, and diverse stakeholders. By coordinating planning and empowering data to enhance physical resilience, promoting institutional resilience through collaborative governance and institutional innovation, and enhancing cultural resilience through community culture and inclusive communities, this research explores a unique transformation path for the S community, identifying common experiences and providing empirical insights for resilient governance of transitional communities.
