Neoliberal-driven austerity has changed the role of the state, public service provision and concepts of citizenship. Thriving in today’s society is a challenge for communities around the world as governments increasingly promote privatisation, centralised control, and individual responsibility. Co-authored by practitioners and academics and based on case studies of collaborations between the public sector, civil society and civic university, this Book uses the North East of England as a lens to explore how different communities have responded to the changing circumstances. The case studies present examples of actions aiming to create hope and inspiration for communities in challenging times.
