Interview with Dario Azzellini and Marina Sitrin by Anna Belladelli

In September 2011, activists occupied Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, initiating a new wave of struggle against capitalism and unprecedented recession. The impact of the Occupy movement has been noticeable also outside the USA, affecting forms of protests, actions, and language.

Inszenierte Öffentlichkeit – Gegenöffentlichkeit

Colin Crouch befindet in seiner These der Postdemokratie, dass Politik von Expert_innen und Wirtschaftseliten gemacht wird und Bürger_innen zur passiven Teilhabe degradiert sind. Dario Azzellini, Assistent am Institut für Soziologie der JKU, befindet dass es den Zustand einer partizipativen Demokratie so nie gegeben hat, sondern dass  liberale
Demokratien gerade auf Elitenpolitik angelegt sind. Den Begriff politische Öffentlichkeit versucht er an der Privatisierung öffentlichen Raums zu konkretisieren.

Workers Control and/or Worker Cooperatives?

GEO: Dario, your co-edited book, Ours to Master and To Own, Workers Control from the Commune to the Present, presents a rich variety of worker control initiatives. These have taken place not only in Europe, but in Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, the USA, Venezuela, Yugoslavia, and other countries. Can you clarify for us what these examples have in common, and what you see as their importance?

What Next, Venezuela? A Roundtable Discussion

President Hugo Chávez was larger than life, stirring hope and controversy while helping to change the political trajectory of Venezuela and Latin America. His death raises pressing and difficult questions: what will become of his political project at home? What are the prospects for regional integration in his wake? How will the United States respond to a post-Chávez landscape?

Listen to the audio of the panelists answering these questions and discussing other topics related to the Venezuelan transition at the roundtable discussion that took place at NYU on March 13.
