When the party's over: the politics of austerity in public services

Examining previous times of austerity in the UK during the 1920s, post-war 1940s, 1970s-80s and the early 1990s, Professor Hood will compare and contrast these periods with current events to examine how, where and why cuts are made to public services in times of hardship. The project will involve an analysis of historical documents and archival data, as well as interviews with previous members of government, current politicians and senior civil servants. It intends to look at whether changes are made to normal working practices in order to make reductions, what motivates cuts in particular areas, as well as looking at how politicians try to avoid the blame for such cutbacks.
