Neoliberalism Workshop: Implications for future visions of work and organisation
Richard White, Senior Lecturer in Economic Geography, Sheffield Hallam University
Dr White examines how we can value and harness alternative work practices in a neoliberal society. He challenges the negativity associated with neoliberalism as a label and argues that decentralisation of capitalism could be harnessed to help us think differently about social justice and empowerment in our everyday spaces and lives.
He said understanding the pervasive nature of non-commodified work practices promoted greater awareness around ‘alternative’, non-capitalist spaces within the advanced economies of the western world.
This talk was given as part of the Neoliberalism, Employment and the Law Workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford, hosted by the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society in November 2015.
