Report on 'The Social Question in Global Perspective' workshop

On November 17-18 the workshop 'The Social Question in Global Perspective' was held organized by the Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research and the International Institute of Social History in collaboration with Re: Work Berlin and the University of Hamburg.
Researchers from India, Brasil, Africa, Hungary, the Netherlands and other countries will rethink the concept of the working class and the ways in which it can further its interests. Traditional forms of collective action that have developed in the North Atlantic region are gradually losing much of their impact. New forms are emerging, though these are often still at an embryonic stage.
Below you can read a report about this conference written by Jan Breman, one of the workshop organizers.
