unpacking the crisis: un(der)employment, entrepreneurship, participation and resistance


The economic crisis has posed new challenges for the democratic system and its institutions in many European countries. Citizens are demanding participation and framing new ways of relating amongst themselves, as well as creating alternatives to a system perceived to be aligned against any form of communal organization. This situation runs in parallel with a general disenchantment with the makings of a bankrupt democratic system. These stories have important implications in the changing landscape for individuals, organizations, and for the social struggles they engage with in an attempt to find alternatives.
