Abstract
Resilience is a term that has risen in popularity with policy makers in the last couple of years, based on the recognition that social systems need to be able to cope with change. Within various scientific domains, resilience has evolved into conceptual frameworks for understanding how complex systems (e.g. an ecosystem, a community) buffer shocks and change over time. The focus is thus always on the interplay between persistence and transformation; emphasizing non-linear dynamics, uncertainty and surprise. These concepts have been applied to the study of a community of Aymara women in Puno (Peru). This community has been participating in a project together with GESPLAN research group since 2007. Through a qualitative approach, resilience is analyzed in terms of persistence and transformation, in order to know whether the project is contributing to improve their lives while keeping their culture and traditions.
