As austerity measures continue to lead to cutbacks in basic social services, a number of grassroots organizations have grown up or expanded throughout Europe to help provide for citizens’ basic needs. This book looks at a number of both secular and faith-based groups in Berlin and London to show how they and their activism have evolved in response to those changes in economic policy. It brings together scholars from different disciplines and practitioners in several areas of social intervention to explore how the very ideas of citizenship and community have begun to change in the wake of cutbacks to the welfare state.
