Abstract

Few empirical studies on Supply Chain Resilience (SCRES) have been reported in the literature; and those that have are mainly focused on the developed world. We present results from the supply network of 20 manufacturing firms in Uganda. We interpret our data using Complex Adaptive System (CAS) theory, which shows how certain conditions, threats and resilience strategies are interrelated. We later adopt an embeddedness perspective to show that the political, cultural and territorial embeddedness of supply networks can produce threats or render SCRES strategies counterproductive. This results in “supply chain risk migration” that affects the process of building SCRES.
