Community and industrial restructuring: responses to the recession and its aftermath in the Illawarra region of Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The combined processes of industrial and community restructuring are examined for the steel city of Wollongong in the Illawarra region of Australia. Recessionary conditions have provided the backdrop to considerable efforts to form and effectively utilise local cross-class alliances as one means of breaking out of decline. Although some progress does appear to have been made, it remains to be seen whether this can provide long-term benefits and whether the new alliances which have formed will strengthen or disintegrate as the recession is left behind. -Author
