Negotiating livelihoods under transformative politics: Crisis, policies and practices in Portugal 2010-20

Negotiating livelihoods under transformative politics: Crisis, policies and practices in Portugal 2010-20

In the last decade Portugal had three governments with different political orientations and proposals for legislative organization of society, each one claiming to initiate a process of transformative politics that would have a positive impact upon Portuguese society. The project aims at reflecting on how different sectors of the society experience their livelihoods through a permanent relation with state institutions throughout a decade of sociopolitical transformations. Our objective is to understand how politics,
and in a certain way, the state, is always present in people?s livelihoods. Through ethnographic research in different social contexts of the contemporary Portuguese society, LIVEPOLITICS will analyse the daily expression of transformative politics, overcoming the idea of the State as an abstraction.
