This chapter presents a revised vulnerability/resilience framework, building on the work of Briguglio et al. (2009).1 The chapter also revises and updates the economic vulnerability and economic resilience indices, the former associated with exposure to external shocks and the latter with policies that can enable a country to minimise or withstand the negative effects of such shocks. A number of policy implications are derived from the study presented in this chapter. 
RESILIENCE BUILDING IN VULNERABLE SMALL STATES
In spite of such exposure, many small states register relatively high rates of GDP per capita. Briguglio (2004) has termed this reality “the Singapore paradox” referring to the possibility that aExpand
