The Politics of Debt and Europe's Relations with the 'South'

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review


The book takes a critical look at the nature of debt as a social force and a key locus of social conflict as well as the uses of debts incurred in the past for political purposes in the present. It does so especially in relation to different understandings of debts between ‘South’ and ‘North’ – within individual countries, regions and globally.
