    Beyond Inequality: Case Studies

    The Rapoport Center and the Harvard Institute for Global Law and Policy have gathered a team of international and interdisciplinary scholars over the past year for a book project rethinking the future of work through methods of racial capitalism, world-systems, and critiques of distribution. This panel highlights case studies from the book about precarity in sites ranging from the Austin construction and Vermont dairy industries in the U.S. to Jordanian apparel factories and Colombian palm plantations.

    Capitalism on Edge: A Conversation

    Albena Azmanova’s latest book, Capitalism on Edge, provocatively insists: “Capitalism is not on its deathbed, utopia is not in our future, and revolution is not in the cards. And yet, the time is ripe for radical progressive change.” In conversation with Jamie Galbraith, Azmanova discusses these claims and more – from the rise of global precarity to the future of capitalism.
