BOOK: Neoliberal Constitutionalism and the Austerity State: The Resurgence of Authoritarianism in the Service of Market

by Sanjaya Wilson

The shock waves of 2008 financial and economic crisis have globally led to relapse and decay of the living conditions of the peoples of the world.

Determined to save the market economy by all means, States resorted to social counter-revolution of austerity and formation of authoritarian rule, in breach of liberal democratic values and human rights norms.
