Resilience is becoming an increasingly important concept for organization. Unfortunately, there is little known about how this concept relates to the politics within an organization on a theoretical level. In this paper a comparative analysis between organizational politics and the resilience of an organization was conducted. Three perspectives on resilience were used in order to specify the context of resilience, while two perspectives on organizational politics were combined together to create a novel framework which is used to explain its relationship with resilience. Results suggest that it is possible to make relations between the two concepts, but future research is needed to make a stronger connection between organizational politics and resilience.
