Spatial Justice and the Irish Crisis

Edited by: Gerry Kearns, David Meredith, John Morrissey

Spatial Justice and the Irish Crisis focuses on the key political, economic, and social geographies that define contemporary Ireland as it has arisen from the financial crisis. The concept of 'spatial justice' provides a cogent entry point into debates around austerity and social justice, and this book offers a nuanced and geographically specific critique of the everyday concerns of citizens, planners, and government officials alike. Each chapter offers a detailed examination of core aspects of the crisis and its management, including issues of housing, planning and the environment, health, education, migration, and unemployment. The book also looks at questions of Irish policy, governmentality, public participation, and active citizenship. [Subject: Sociology, Irish Studies, Economics]
