This edited collection gives voice to children, young people and families at the sharp end of contemporary processes of neoliberalism, austerity and crises in diverse global contexts. Bringing together new, multi-disciplinary research, it explores how children, young people and families experience and cope with situations of socio-economic poverty and precarity across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. It looks at how contemporary contexts of neoliberalism, austerity and economic crisis impact upon children, young people and families, evidencing the multiple harms and inequalities caused by these processes. Examining the ways that children, young people and families ‘get by’ under these challenging circumstances, it shows how they care for one another and envisage more hopeful socio-political futures.
