Portugal Before and After the “Great Recession”: A Resilient Democracy?
This book explores the factors that might explain why some of the changes occurring in other Southern European democracies as an impact of the crisis have not been felt in Portugal. The chapter is organised as follows: in the next section, we introduce the impact of the 2008 financial crises in Portugal. We then move to the framework of the book and the main research questions. Finally, the main consequences of the crisis for Portuguese democracy will be explored, based on the chapters of the book.
