    This article sheds light on the involvement of members of the public in the United Kingdom's resilience agenda through an examination of the Project Argus initiative. The article argues that it is principally through knowledge sharing between state and citizen that Argus seeks to foster increased resilience. It then moves on to elaborate the idea of the resilient citizen, emphasising the way in which it represents a potentially more permeating form of institutionalisation of the resilience agenda. The development of the resilient citizen, the article concludes, captures a bargain struck between state and citizen: extra knowledge for extra responsibility.
