Global Rupture: Neoliberal Capitalism and the Rise of Informal Labour in the Global South

Anita Hammer

Global Rupture makes a key intervention in debates on informal and precarious labour. Increasing recognition that informal and precarious labour is an enduring reality under neo-liberal capitalism, and the norm globally, rather than the exception has ignited debates around analytical frames, activist strategies and development interventions. This pathbreaking volume provides a corrective through drawing upon theoretically informed rich case studies from the world outside of North America, Europe, and Australasia. Each contribution converges on the enduring and expanding significance of informal and precarious work within the Global South--the most significant factor in preventing a worldwide decent work agenda.

*Global Rupture: Neoliberal Capitalism and the Rise of Informal Labour in the Global South is now available in paperback for individual customers.
