This special issue on "The Politics of Austerity" is available to view. As the editors comment, "Our contributors have addressed the complex problems of austerity in three main ways: first, by challenging the economic and political orthodoxies about the nature of the crisis and the political responses to it for their gendered underpinnings; second, by revealing the gendered, racialised and sexualised exclusions and violence–both material and discursive–that neo-liberal policies of austerity have produced and enabled, and the limits and possibilities of resistance that have resulted; and third, by tracking the gendered impacts of specific austerity policies and the emerging forms of resistance to them."
