We consider the supersymmetric Higgs effect, in which a spin-\textonehalf{} Goldstone fermion is transformed away by a redefinition of the supergravity fields and the spin-$\frac{3}{2}$ gauge field acquires the degrees of freedom appropriate to finite mass. More generally we discuss the consistency and physical applicability of supergravity theories with broken local supersymmetry. 
Super-Higgs in Superspace
We determine the effective gravitational couplings in superspace whose components reproduce the supergravity Higgs effect for the constrained Goldstino multiplet. It reproduces the known Gravitino
Fermionic Goldstone-Higgs Effect in (2+1)-Dimensional Supergravity
The non-linear spinor realisation of global supersymmetry is consistently coupled to supergravity in (2+1) dimensions. The resulting local invariance permits gauging away of the spinor field, while
