New project to tackle questions of austerity

Political Science Professor, Dr. Stephen McBride, heads up an international project aimed at discussing the effects of and alternatives to austerity measures adopted by various levels of governments.

Jul 13, 2017

The project, named Austerity and its Alternatives, brings together academic and non-academic researchers, institutions, and NGOs in Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and Germany to stimulate conversations about alternatives to austerity. Their goal is to translate research findings, data, and insight on the effects and alternatives of austerity policies into highly readable summaries that bring knowledge and academics out from the classroom and into the hands of the general public and policy communities.
