, identify the home fundamentally as a tradeable asset that can be used to develop personal fortunes that enable reduced dependence on state and community supports. Seen in this way the home is, for many people, a methodology for achieving security and autonomy that is aligned with projects of statecraft and economic governance. It is the means, or the perceived means at least, by which the self and household hope to achieve a sense of security and independence.

be said, evident across the heterodox economic sciences.1 Ever since economic geography’s (re)birth, as a vibrantly heterodox field, in the late 1970s, Polanyi has been an enigmatic and occasionally inspirational presence, although in some respects he has remained an elusive if not rather cryptic figure. One of his first appearances came courtesy of regulation and state theories, beginning in the mid-1980s, where he served as an avatar for a raft of arguments concerning the necessity for (and contradictory effects of) social regulation and economic governance, the

The conjunctural impact of time concerns the medium term, spanning a few years. In economics, a conjuncture refers to the cyclical recurrence of economic circumstances that occur within the structural trends. Conjunctural theories offer explanations based on circumstances and conditions in particular episodes in history. For example, when we study the EU response to the Arab uprisings, we must consider that at the time Europe was in the midst of the Eurozone crisis: a sovereign debt crisis that broke out in May 2010 and left European financial and economic

The case of Oxfam

better or worse. It would be unfair to dismiss this notion, as it was occasionally voiced in interviews. The best explanation, however, is that Oxfam only really trusted the WTO to enact any trade policy due to its opinion on what forms of economic governance were required in conditions of globalisation. It is worth noting that New Labour, for instance, was for the most part a reluctant supporter of bilateral agreements for precisely this reason. The economy has to be global; for Oxfam, development must be globalised too. Oxfam’s discourse suggested the view that the

approach became firmly anchored within Irish economic governance from 1987 onwards through the medium of ‘social partnership’. Table 3.3 outlines the various agreements and their duration. Hardiman (2002: 7) argues that social partnership since the 1980s refers to a process of consultation between government and the principal organisations representing employers, trade unions and the farmers. The Programme for National Recovery (PNR) 1987 marked the beginning of successive agreements and social partnership has widened to include community and voluntary sectors in the so

briefings at national level while a great many candidates also had individual launch events in their own constituencies (Leahy, 2016). The government parties campaigned on their record in office and Fine Gael relied on a much-derided ‘keep the recovery going’ slogan. The slogan had been developed over a number of months by strategists who had drawn heavily from focus group research and had been influenced by strategists from the successful UK Conservative Party campaign in 2015. In essence, the party sought to sell a message of effective economic governance and a promise

this diffusion and how does it take place? For sure, there are international institutions that act as powerful channels for the generation and surveillance of these discourses. But still this does not say very much about how these discourses are introduced and communicated at the national level, or what is the nature of the relationship between these discourses and the public/domestic sphere. This problem becomes even more acute if we shift our focus from sets of policy ideas onto systems of political or politico-economic governance (e.g. liberal democracy and
