Whatever happened to ‘social’ security?

I’ve done a blog post for a project at Teesside University exploring the Uncertain Futures that young people on Teesside face.

The post examines the government’s recent rhetoric around ‘security’, how they are best placed to ‘secure our future’ and the portayal of Jeremy Corbyn as a ‘threat’ to our national security. It asks the question why, then, we don’t hear much about ‘social security’ these days.

There is also a very interesting one day conference being organised at Teesside University on Precarious places, precarious lives on 19 May 2016. More info about this can be found here and a flyer for the event can be found here

Best wishes,
