Director and Professor Donna Baines is pleased to announce the publication of her new book entitled “Working in the Context of Austerity: Challenges and Struggles.”
Edited by Donna Baines and Ian Cunningham
Austerity has been presented as the antidote to sluggish economies, but has had far-reaching effects on jobs and employment conditions. This international collection engages with the major debates surrounding austerity and neoliberalism and explores the changing dynamics of work and employment in the private, public and nonprofit sectors. Identifying pockets of progressive policies and resistance, the collection highlights how even potentially beneficial initiatives are frequently stymied by austerity’s hold on government policies and ideology.
