about this item

This book maps the differences and similarities in the ways precariousness and insecurity in employment unfold and are experienced in regions and sectors that are confronted with different labour histories, legislations and economic priorities. Establishing a constructive dialogue amongst different global regions and across disciplines, the authors explore the shift from precariousness to precariat and collective subjects as it is being articulated in the current global crisis. The focus is on subjectivity and how it intersects ongoing changes in the experiences and representations of the subjects involved who define their own condition of precariousness and explain how they try to withdraw from, survive within or embrace it. Offering a critical analysis of contemporary forms of production and labour policies, this volume aims to understand and develop new conceptual tool and practices from the standpoint of those affected by precariousness.
