Abstract: Agriculture’s resilience has been identified as one of the main priorities of the 2023–2027 Common Agricultural Policy agenda (EU Commission, 2020), as it is widely accepted that resilience is a key pre-condition for the sector’s sustainable development. The goal of resilience growth necessitates an objective evaluation of resilience changes and the estimation of the impact (possibly) made by various factors on resilience. However, the concept of resilience is still very ambiguous, lacking a universally agreed methodology for its evaluation and empirical evidence on how to support policies that influence agriculture’s economic resilience. Therefore, the dissertation aimed to assess the impact of direct payments on the economic resilience of agriculture. The study resulted in an integrated index of the direct payments’ impact on agriculture’s economic resilience. The following main tasks were resolved during the study: the analysis of the scientific literature was performed to study the nature, development, measurement, and use of the resilience concept and, subsequently, to apply it to the assessment of agriculture’s resilience; the existing research on the assessment of direct payments’ impact on individual agricultural indicators was systematized; a set of indicators reflecting agriculture’s economic resilience was formed; a theoretical model for the assessment of the direct payments’ impact on agriculture’s economic resilience was created; and its practical adaptability was verified at the level of the EU-27, the OMS-15 and the NMS-12 in 2005–2019. The dissertation consists of an introduction, three chapters, general conclusions, references, and a list of the author’s publications on the topic of the dissertation. The first chapter presents the analysis of the resilience concept, its operationalization and measurement, and the rationale for integrating the resilience construct in the agricultural context. Also, it provides a developed theoretical model of the direct payments’ impact on agriculture’s economic resilience. The second chapter presents the theoretical model for assessing the direct payments’ impact on agriculture’s economic resilience and the description of its elements. The third chapter presents the empirical results of the model application in the EU-27, the OMS-15, and the NMS-12. The obtained results were used to formulate conclusions and proposals on how to improve the system of direct payments support. Six scientific articles were published on the topic of the dissertation; presentations were made at two international scientific conferences; and an internship took place at the University of Łódź (Poland), where the results of the dissertation were presented.
