Featured image for 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.
