Resource description

Policy debates about measuring happiness in the current climate sound like something from a bygone era when men didn’t cry and women wore matching gloves. But the gloves are firmly off and we are now facing the harsh realities of work and the lack of it. As government and employers put their faith in resilience initiatives to get people into work it is worth asking if resilience is a concept fit for purpose. In her sixth and final article on public policy, work, and mental health Elizabeth Cotton argues that we already possess the key to survival; it’s just a question of emancipation.
