Call for papers – International gathering of “the workers’ economy”

Self-management and Work as Alternatives to the Global Economic Crisis
July 9-12, 2013
João Pessoa, Brazil

History of the International Gathering of “The Workers’ Economy”
The International Gathering of “The Workers’ Economy” had is its first encuentro in Buenos Aires in July 2007 under the theme “Self-management and the Distribution of Wealth.” It was organized by the Open Faculty Program of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Buenos Aires, in conjunction with other academic institutions, social organizations, and workers from Argentina and around the world. The International Gatherings have emerged into a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences between academics, activists, and workers. These ideas center on the possibilities and challenges of self-management; the regeneration of a political, economic, and social project by the working class and social movements; as well as critical discussion and analyses of the practices of academic research focusing on self-management and the workers’ economy.
