The inaugural meeting of the Berlin-Britain Research Network took place in September 2014. The group discussed impulse papers from various disciplines on the effects and problems of austerity politics in the UK in the 2010s. With its focus on critical austerity studies, the network intends to explore austerity not just as economic measures but as a 'new' political agenda with long-term effects in all areas of politics, culture, the economy, and society. It will continue its discussions at bi-annual meetings in Berlin.
