Dario Azzellini en: La metrópolis creativa: innovación social y espacios de resistencia en el Sur de Europa y América Latina

¡Ocupar, resistir, producir! La crisis actual y las recuperaciones de empresas recuperadas por sus trabajadores en Europa

A lo largo de las dos últimas décadas la noción de innovación social ha venido adquiriendo un creciente interés en relación con el desarrollo urbano, interés que parece haberse afirmado en el contexto de la crisis desatada en 2007 y su impacto en términos de pobreza, vulnerabilidad, exclusión social y desigualdad. Refleja, además, la necesidad de poner en marcha dinámicas de cambio social capaces de confrontar, e incluso revertir, las crisis sistémicas periódicas y sus principales consecuencias.

Räte, Arbeiterkontrolle und Selbstverwaltung am Arbeitsplatz

Wir können auch anders

Wir können auch anders

 Die Forderung nach Wirtschaftsdemokratie war eine Initiative der Arbeiter- und Gewerkschaftsbewegung in den 1920er Jahren. In der Bundesrepublik wurde dieser Impuls vor allem in die unterschiedlichen Formen der Mitbestimmung in der verarbeitenden Industrie umgesetzt. Daneben gibt es die Praktiken der Genossenschaften, der Kooperativen und der Selbstverwaltung.

Commons and Conflict

Today, everyone is speaking about commons and ‘commoning’, everyone wants to build commons. The World Bank has a group which is supposedly ‘protecting and improving the global commons’ and it reaches out to the private sector to ‘advance common goods’. You can find texts on commons on the website of the European Union, banks organize seminars on the commons. Transnational companies tell us they are building the commons, big magazines declare that Uber is commoning cars, and that the “sharing economy” is a form of commoning.

Dario Azzellini in: Council Democracy. Towards a Democratic Socialist Politics

"The Legacy of Workers’ Councils in Contemporary Social Movements"

„The return to public assemblies and direct democratic methods in the wave of the global "squares movements" since 2011 has rejuvenated interest in forms of council organisation and action. The European council movements, which developed in the immediate post-First World War era, were the most impressive of a number of attempts to develop workers’ councils throughout the twentieth century. However, in spite of the recent challenges to liberal democracy, the question of council democracy has so far been neglected within democratic theory.

Labour as a Commons: The Example of Worker-Recuperated Companies

This article argues that labour can be understood as a commons, located in the discussion of how commons can advance the transformation of social relations and society. To manage labour as a commons entails a shift away from the perception of labour power as the object of capital’s value practices, towards a notion of labour power as a collectively and sustainably managed resource for the benefit of society.

Dario Azzellini in: Latin American Utopias: Past and Present, Edited by Juan Pro

“The Commune in Venezuela: A Utopian Prefiguration”

In an age in which fears about the future predominate (in the form of dystopias, ecological catastrophes and terrifying Sci-Fi scenarios), utopia is reappearing as the bearer of hope for the fate of humanity. Latin America has historically been a fertile ground where utopian projects, movements and experiments could take root and thrive, and this constitutes one of the region's major contributions to world history.

“Toma de empresas y gestión bajo control obrero en Europa como respuesta a la crisis”

„Poderíamos dizer que este volume trata dos processos de transformação social sob o capital, contra ou a favor dele, das suas transições socioeconômicas no sentido da emancipação da classe trabalhadora quanto do capital, neste quadrante histórico de reversões conexas e complexas. A captura desses três ricos processos se dá em grande estilo, possibilitando ao leitor e alunos uma rica e apaixonante leitura de tão vitais processos.

Betriebsbesetzungen und Arbeiten in Selbstverwaltung

Vom Protest zum sozialen Prozess

Vom Protest zum sozialen Prozess

Betriebsbesetzungen mit dem Ziel der Produktion in Selbstverwaltung sind seit der Jahrtausend­wende aus Lateinamerika, vor allem aus Argentinien, bekannt. Im Laufe der aktuellen Krise haben Beschäftigte auch in Europa und Nordamerika erfolgreich Besetzungen von Betrieben durchgeführt, die von der Schließung bedroht waren.
