Networked Labour was an outcome of an international seminar held in Amsterdam between 7-9 May 2013. The seminar was initially supported by Networked Politics, transform! europe, Transnational Institute and IGOPNET (Institut de Govern the Polítiques Públiques).
At the end of the seminar several ideas have emerged one of which was to improve this web space and try to transform it into a transnational and distributed network space, through which all of us could build new ties and expand our nets of collaboration.
WHY, HOW AND WHERE YOU CAN JOIN
Our current work will be focusing on the changing worlds of labour and production, emerging new movements, political actors and their politics. We wish to discuss, and exchange theoretical, political and practical knowledge and ideas on these topics as well as in relation to the accelerating developments in the ICTs. Hopefully such efforts and collaboration would create new synergies by bringing together contributors, observers and participants to the recent social changes, innovation, movements, protests, and mobilizations. We believe this will enable us to increase our collective understanding of the new possibilities emerging in front of us for a radical social change.
