Workfare, post-Soviet austerity and the ethics of freedom

First Edition

Liene Ozolina

Published by Manchester University Press

Political Ethnography

  • Makes a strong and timely contribution to theorizing the forms of state power emerging in the aftermath of several decades of neoliberalism
  • Offers a comparative perspective, situating the post-Soviet austerity state and welfare reforms vis-à-vis both the global political economy and the Soviet history
  • Develops a theorization of politics of time and thus contributes to the emerging field of sociology of waiting
  • Brings into dialogue recent scholarship on neoliberalism and post-neoliberal forms of rule with the anthropology of ethics
