Patterns of Resilience during Socioeconomic Crises among Households in Europe (RESCuE)

Since 2008, Europe has been shaken by an ongoing crisis. If relevant parts of populations are exposed to socioeconomic risks, it is a distinctive characteristic of European political ethics that they must not be left alone, but should be subject to support and solidarity by budget support policy, economic development policies and social policy at different levels. But, in analogy with medical and psychological findings, some parts of the vulnerable population, although experiencing the same living conditions as others, are developing resilience, which in our context means that they perform social, economic and cultural practices and habits which protect them from suffer and harm and support sustainable patterns of coping and adaption. This resilience to socioeconomic crises at household levels is the focus of the proposed project. It can consist of identity patterns, knowledge, family or community relations, cultural and social as well as economic practices, be they formal or informal. Welfare states, labour markets and economic policies at both macro or meso level form the context or ‘environment’ of those resilience patterns. For reasons of coping with the crisis without leaving the common ground of the implicit European social model (or the unwritten confession to the welfare state) under extremely bad monetary conditions in many countries, and for reasons of maintaining quality of life and improving social policy, it is a highly interesting perspective to learn from emergent processes of resilience development and their preconditions. Thus, the main questions are directed at understanding patterns and dimensions of resilience at micro-/household level in different types of European member and neighbour states accounting for regional varieties, relevant internal and external conditions and resources as well as influences on these patterns by social, economic or labour market policy as well as legal regulations.

Over the last few years, the European Union has been experiencing a period of never-ending crises. The responses given by the EU and member states to these crises have shaped the EU and the political atmosphere in the member states. Analyzing the effects of crises on the EU and its member states is critical in understanding the changing dynamics of the European integration. Since 2015, the Refugee Crisis has dramatically affected and transformed European politics. Far-right political parties have grown more...
Can Developing Countries Maintain Financial Stability after the Global Crisis? The Role of External Financial Shocks
Cömert, Hasan (2018-01-01)
The recent global turmoil severely affected some developing economies. However, in general, these nations survived the crisis with less damage compared with advanced countries. The majority of developing countries did not experience a financial system collapse. What were the main factors behind their relatively better performance? We argue that the main reason was the relatively moderate financial account shocks, in terms of both magnitude and duration, experienced by developing economies during the global ...
Measurement of NAIRU: What is new and what is next for the Turkish economy?
Us, Vuslat (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2017-8)
The Turkish economy has been exposed to several risks after the global crisis. These emanated mostly from external factors such as the adoption of unconventional monetary policies by advanced economies, the sovereign debt crisis in the Euro area and the exit from the prolonged use of extraordinary anti–crisis measures. However, policy measures adopted against these risks led to a notable slowdown in the Turkish economy, raising questions about a middle income trap. In the meantime, starting from 2012, ...
