Summary/Abstract: In this paper, the author first discusses the significance of resilience as a concept that describes one's ability to preserve balance in times of hardship and adversity. Further on, the author elaborates on the contribution of Emmy Werner to this issue and explains the co-relation between resilience and victimology. In the final part of the paper, the author provides an overview of the resilience theory which challenges the conception of sustainable development of nature, and correlates these theoretical standpoints on resilience with possible forms of crime prevention through environmental design by observing the life in urban agglomerations.
