The city is an important carrier for human survival and development. However, the city has also become a place where various disasters and risks happen frequently with population increase. Just under this background, the resilience city has been proposed and gradually become an important topic in modern urban planning and construction. From the low-carbon city, the green city, the sponge city, the smart city to the resilient city, the concept of urban governance has escalated. Starting with the theory of resilience, this paper untangles the concept evolution of resilience city, and summarizes the establishment of assessment and indicators of resilient cities systematically. The assessment of resilience cities will mainly start from the following aspects: determining scale, selecting methods, constructing dimensions, determining criteria, establishing indicators, and data aggregation. Finally, the paper summarizes and prospects the current research on assessment of resilience cities in China.
