We build upon recent spatial research to deepen the exploration of persistence resilience within modern consumption contexts of austerity. In-depth interviews with 38 consumers from six European countries revealed self-efficacy, creativity and community as key themes related to persistent resilience, activated in response to severe and sustained austerity.
