European Consumers and Their Persistent Resilience in the Face of Austerity

We build upon recent spatial research to deepen the exploration of persistence resilience within modern consumption contexts of austerity. In-depth interviews with 38 consumers from six European countries revealed self-efficacy, creativity and community as key themes related to persistent resilience, activated in response to severe and sustained austerity.
