The concept of resilience is gaining increasing traction in economic studies. In framing economic resilience, surprisingly little consideration has been given to the role played by the geographical positioning of a region, particularly those that lie on the external borders of a political and trading bloc such as the European Union. Drawing on empirical research, this chapter considers evidence for the possible adverse effects of some forms of positionality for resilience outcomes. The results of our analysis indicate that there is an external border effect that can adversely affect resilience outcomes. However, the effect is not uniform, suggesting that it is one factor amongst a number of others that can affect the economic resilience of a region. Our results confirm the importance of considering both policy dimensions and the structural characteristics of regions.
