Die Spielregeln der Globalisierung ändern?
Zum Umgang mit der Globalisierung besteht eine Vielfalt von Konzepten. Der Übersichtsartikel unseres Autors in der Juli-Ausgabe der Kommune, "Globalisierung - eine Zwischenbilanz", schloss mit einer sowohl nach Strategie als auch nach Regelungsebene differenzierten Typologie der Reaktionen auf die Globalisierung. Die Strategien waren unterteilt nach Versuchen, Globalisierungstendenzen zu ignorieren, sich ihnen gegenüber abzuschotten, sich ihnen anzupassen und schließlich in Bemühungen, die Rahmenbedingungen zu ändern. ...
China's Labor Question
(Rainer Hampp Verlag, München, Mering, 2011)
The Honda workers’ strike in 2010 attracted world wide attention. It was one of thousands of labor disputes that happen every year in China, but it was the first major calling for the right of workers to represent themselves in collective bargaining. The question of representation is therefore the main topic of the book. The various contributors to this volume share the view that the Chinese party-state takes the protest against social inequality seriously. It has enacted many laws aimed at channeling dissatisfaction ...

Through the emergence of unions such as SEWA, the notion of who represents labour is being broadened; the marginalised are finding an institutional voice.

Opportunities and constraints of peri-urban buffalo and dairy cattle systems in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan
(ICDD, International Center for Development and Decent Work, University of Kassel, 2012-01)
In the big cities of Pakistan, peri-urban dairy production plays an important role for household income generation and the supply of milk and meat to the urban population. On the other hand, milk production in general, and peri-urban dairy production in particular, faces numerous problems that have been well known for decades. Peri-urban dairy producers have been especially neglected by politicians as well as non-government-organizations (NGOs). Against this background, a study in Pakistan’s third largest city, ...
