Crisis, Housing and Austerity: the emergence of a new Moral Politics?

Project description

Moral politics and urban austerity

The rise of political values and practices opposed to the building of an inclusive and sustainable society is one of the biggest challenges facing the European project today. As urban areas increasingly become sites of political contestation, in which austerity is both implemented and resisted, broader issues such as intergenerational justice, redistribution, solidarity and citizenship are distilled into concrete conflicts. The EU-funded CHAMP project will investigate how morals help construct and mediate political demands. The project will explore the moral foundations of critique focused on housing policy in Ireland, Portugal and the United Kingdom, national-urban cases which have provoked different responses to austerity, and will do so by developing an innovative, interdisciplinary analytical framework.
