  • Material Footprints: The Struggle for Borders by Bedouin-Palestinians in
    • Authors: Sharri Plonski
      Abstract: In the following article, borders become an epistemology for reading the social and political history of settler geographies, and their particular manifestation in the southern Naqab region of Israel. It takes as its starting point the idea that borders are activated in an assemblage of encounters; and that they act as markers, not only of the power of the settler state to rupture and control indigenous life and mobility, but of the multiple resistances that divert, disrupt and unsettle settler movements and spaces. Based on more than three years of fieldwork with the Unrecognised Bedouin-Palestinian communities of the Naqab, the article investigates the significance of borders in spaces the state has conceived and structured as empty and dead. In exploring the multiple modes of resistance and resilience that constitute Bedouin struggles for recognition in Israel, it finds relevance in the lines they carve out, and the living spaces that persist and evolve in their shadows.

  • Disaster Capitalism and the Quick, Quick, Slow Unravelling of Animal Life
    • Authors: Rosemary-Claire Collard
      Abstract: Sea otters have barely survived centuries of colonial and capitalist development. To understand why, I examine how they have been oriented in capitalist social relations in Alaska, and with what effects. I follow sea otters through three overlapping political economic episodes, each of which shapes the next: colonial expansion and the fur trade; petro-capitalism and the negligent neoliberal state, culminating in the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill; and finally, spill cleanup and “green” capitalism, when sea otters are produced as data points and spectacle. In each episode, I describe (1) sea otters’ orientation in relation to capitalism and the state, and (2) the nature and temporality of violence and ecological loss that attends their orientation. In conversation with theorisations of extinction as a “slow unravelling”, I suggest animal life can unravel less slowly than haltingly—quick, quick, slow—and that the unravelling and animals’ orientation in capitalism are co-constituted.

  • Introduction: Mediterranean Movements and the Reconfiguration of the
           Military-Humanitarian Border in 2015
    • Authors: Glenda Garelli; Alessandra Sciurba, Martina Tazzioli
      Abstract: This article deals with the transformations occurred in the government of refugees in the Mediterranean since 2013, when the military-humanitarian operation Mare Nostrum was launched by the European Union. The paper analyses how military and humanitarian practices are entangled in governing refugees and develops the notion of military-humanitarianism. The Mediterranean borderzone has undergone radical reconfigurations over the last few years. Particularly, new technologies of control for strengthening the role of the Mediterranean Sea as a pre-frontier of Europe have been put in place. The production and the declaration of a “refugee crisis” in Europe has contributed to producing important shifts within the field of humanitarianism: from a politics for alleviating suffering, humanitarianism has progressively been redefined as a politics of rescue. Simultaneously, military actors, such as the Navy, have gained center stage in performing humanitarian task (saving migrant lives at sea). Our paper interrogates the spatiality of these processes.

  • Grabbing Land for Equitable Development' Reengineering Land
           Dispossession through Securitising Land Development Rights in Chongqing
    • Authors: Yunpeng Zhang
      Abstract: This article examines the securitisation of land development rights under the dipiao scheme in Chongqing, China. It argues that this instrument is based on the dispossession and exploitation of rural households but these unequal relations have been concealed and naturalised through the complex geographies and temporalities of dispossessory arrangements, financing mechanisms and discursive tactics. By overcoming political barriers to land commodification and dispossession in this way, the Chongqing government has expanded the frontier of commodifiable land and sustained a land-based, urban-centric and debt-financed accumulation. Instead of narrowing the urban–rural divide, this instrument reproduces and solidifies it. On this basis, the article argues that conceptual and political innovations for inclusive and equitable development needs to shift the attention from land to people.本文剖析了重庆地票实验中的土地发展权的证券化。文章指出, 地票交易是对农村家庭的剥削与剥夺, 然而交易中的不平等关系却通过复杂的剥夺方式、融资机制和话语策略被掩饰或者正常化。通过这些制度安排, 重庆政府克服了土地商品化和土地剥夺过程中的政治阻碍, 扩大了可商品化的土地的边界, 从而巩固了以土地商品化为基础, 以城市为中心, 以举债为手段的资本积累模式。因此, 地票这一工具强化而非缩小城乡差距。基于此, 文章认为, 着眼于包容、平等发展的理念与制度创新应当把焦点从对土地的关注转移到对人的关注。

  • Neoliberalisation from the Ground Up: Insurgent Capital, Regional
           Struggle, and the Assetisation of Land
    • Authors: Callum Ward; Erik Swyngedouw
      Abstract: In this paper we argue that “assetisation” has been a central axis through which both neoliberalisation and financialisation have encroached in the post-Fordist era. We focus on the mobilisation of land as a financial asset in northwest England's former industrial heartlands, offering an account of how property developer the Peel Group came to dominate the land and port infrastructure of the region through aggressive debt-led expansion and, in particular, a hostile takeover of the Manchester Ship Canal for its land-bank. In doing so, we illustrate how the capture of resources, especially land, by private corporations has shaped both substance and process of neoliberalisation from the ground up. By focusing on transformative struggles over land we contribute to research agendas attempting to understand the systemically dispossessive nature of assetisation, its relationship to fictitious capital formation, and the way such neoliberalising transformations are produced through grounded and situated socio-spatial struggles.Dans cet article, nous argumentons que “l'assétisation” est un élément central de l'expansion du neolibéralisme et de la financialisation durant l’ère post-fordiste. Nous étudions la mobilisation de la valeur du sol comme capital financier dans le coeur industriel du nord de l'Angleterre. Nous montrons la manière dont le promoteur privé “the Peel Group” a pris le contrôle des terrains et des infrastructures portuaires de la région grâce à une expansion agressive fondée sur l'augmentation de sa dette et en particulier par le rachat hostile du Canal de Manchester pour acquérir le contrôle de ses rives. Ceci illustre comment la prise de contrôle des ressources locales par des entreprises privées donne forme tant à la substance qu'au processus de néolibéralisation par la base. En s'intéressant aux conflits fonciers, notre recherche contribue à comprendre la nature dépossessive systématique de l'assétisation, sa relation à la formation de capital fictif et la manière dont les transformations neolibérales sont produites au travers des conflits socio-spatiaux ancrés dans le territoire.

  • Securing the Return: How Enhanced US Border Enforcement Fuels Cycles of
           Debt Migration
    • Authors: Richard L. Johnson; Murphy Woodhouse
      Abstract: Expanded border enforcement has made unauthorised migration to the US more risky, costly, and prone to failure. Research on the material consequences of border enforcement for migrant-sending households in Central America reveals that the economic hardships enforcement exacts on migrants at times diminishes enforcement's desired deterrent power. Heightened risks have driven up the cost of migration and pushed many to fund their trips through loans. Consequently, migrant detention, deportation, or death can result in poverty and privation for indebted households and the seizure of loan collateral, typically homes and land, in turn prompting crises in household reproduction. With a US wage the most viable means to ameliorate economic hardships, enforcement outcomes push some to return migration. Our findings suggest that US border enforcement efforts at times perpetuate the very unauthorised migration they seek to impede, while also helping to reproduce the border itself by deepening the marginalisation that drives migration decisions.La militarización de la frontera estadounidense ha hecho que la migración indocumentada a los EE.UU sea más cara y riesgosa. Sin embargo, entrevistas con migrantes Centroamericanos revela que estas dificultades a veces socavan el deseado efecto disuasorio de la militarización. El incremento en los costos ha obligado que muchos migrantes tengan que financiar sus viajes con préstamos. La detención, deportación, o muerte pueden resultar en privaciones económicas extremas para los endeudados y la pérdida de bienes, que fomentan una crisis en la reproducción de la familia. Dado que un sueldo en los EE.UU es la manera más viable para aliviar dicha crisis, las consecuencias del control fronterizo pueden resultar en nuevos intentos de migración. Nuestra investigación sugiere que la militarización a veces perpetua la misma migración indocumentada que intenta detener, mientras a la vez contribuye a la continuación de la frontera misma al agudizar la marginalización que estimula la migración.

  • Negotiating Green Space with Landed Interests: The Urban Political Ecology
           of Greenway in the Pearl River Delta, China
    • Authors: Calvin King Lam Chung; Fangzhu Zhang, Fulong Wu
      Abstract: Land-centred urbanisation has precipitated shortage of green space in Chinese cities. However, in the Pearl River Delta, an ambitious greenway system has recently managed to flourish. It is intriguing to ask how this has become possible. Informed by the perspective of urban political ecology, this paper finds that the greenway project in the Pearl River Delta represents a set of politically realistic endeavours to alleviate urban green space shortage by adapting to, rather than challenging, powerful landed interests. Three interlocking dimensions about land—municipal land quota, rural land use claims, and real estate development—have influenced why, where and how greenways have been created. Based on these findings, we argue that research on China's politics of urban sustainability necessarily needs to understand the country's land politics.以土地为中心的城市化导致了中国城市绿地的短缺。然而, 一个宏大的绿道系统最近在珠江三角洲蓬勃发展。这个绿道系统如何能够发展起来, 成为一个引人注目的问题。借助城市政治生态学的研究视角, 本文发现珠江三角洲的绿道项目应被视作一系列务实的政治尝试, 它通过适应而非挑战强大的土地利益来缓解城市绿地短缺。为了理解绿道项目的起因、位置和建设方式,我们将焦点放在城市土地配额、农村土地使用权和房地产开发这三个相互关联的土地维度上。基于这些研究结果, 我们认为要研究中国城市可持续发展的政治, 首先需要认识中国的土地政治。

  • The Transnationalisation of Competing State Projects: Carbon Offsetting
           and Development in Sumatra's Coastal Peat Swamps
    • Authors: Jonas Hein; Heiko Faust, Yvonne Kunz, Rina Mardiana
      Abstract: Indonesia's peatlands can be considered as conflict arenas where different state projects and actors compete. The case presented here stands for a new conservation controversy. The Berbak Carbon Initiatives overlap with a settlement project, inducing struggles among different state apparatuses, transnational actors, and peasants. This article is based on a novel conceptual approach building on political ecology, politics of scale and state theory for investigating divergent and transnationalised state projects. Empirically we draw on qualitative research conducted in the province of Jambi, Sumatra. We argue that the territorial conflicts mirror the contradictory interests of different state apparatuses influenced by conservation-oriented and development-oriented actors in society but also by supra-national planning institutions. In our case, the contestation becomes visible through inconsistent notions of development and property. We show how political change challenges the implementation of a forest carbon project, illustrating the high risks of mitigating climate change through offsetting.Lahan gambut di Indonesia dapat dianggap sebagai arena konflik dimana berbagai proyek negara dan para aktor bersaing. Kasus yang disajikan di sini merupakan sebuah contoh kontroversial baru dalam hal konservasi. Inisiatif Karbon Berbak tumpang tindih dengan sebuah proyek pemukiman yang memicu keributan antara berbagai aparat negara, aktor transnasional, dan petani. Artikel ini didasarkan pada pendekatan konseptual baru yang berdasarkan ekologi politik, politik skala dan teori negara untuk menyelidiki proyek-proyek negara yang makin senjang dan bersifat transnasional. Secara empiris kami melakukan penelitian kualitatif di Provinsi Jambi, Sumatera. Kami berpendapat bahwa konflik teritorial mencerminkan kepentingan aparat-aparat negara yang kontradiktif yang dipengaruhi oleh aktor masyarakat yang berorientasi konservasi maupun yang berorientasi pembangunan, lagipula terpengaruh institusi perencanaan supra nasional.Dalam kasus kami, persaingan itu kelihatan melalui konsep-konsep pembangunan dan tanah milik yang tidak konsisten. Kami menunjukkan bagaimana perubahan politik menjadi sebuah tantangan bagi implementasi proyek karbon hutan, yang menggambarkan risiko besar dari mitigasi perubahan iklim melalui kompensasi.

  • Financialisation as Monopoly Profit: The Case of US Banking
    • Authors: Brett Christophers
      Abstract: Different economic measures afford different ways of seeing processes of financialisation. In the prototypical case of the US economy, the most compelling evidence of post-1970s financialisation is found in corporate profits measures. This much has been clear for at least a decade. What remains much less clear, however, is the explanation for the long-term maintenance and amplification of extreme financial-sector profitability that financialisation in the United States has and continues to entail. With a specific focus on banking, this article turns to post-Marxian scholarship on profit rate trends to explain this phenomenon. It argues that limited and declining levels of competition within the US banking sector during recent decades—rooted in high levels of industry concentration, collusive behaviour, and substantial entry barriers—have contributed to sustaining and boosting abnormal sectoral profitability. In doing so, the article theorises financialisation in the United States explicitly in terms of monopoly profit.

  • The Financialisation of Rental Housing 2.0: Releasing Housing into the
           Privatised Mainstream of Capital Accumulation
    • Authors: Gertjan Wijburg; Manuel B. Aalbers, Susanne Heeg
      Abstract: This article presents two cases of listed real estate companies that operate in the Ruhr metropolitan region of Germany. The first is Immeo Wohnen, a subsidiary of the French real estate investment trust (REIT) Foncière des Régions that was previously owned by a US hedge fund. The second is Vonovia, Germany's largest real estate company, originally a subsidiary of a British private equity firm. Both examples embody what we call the shift from financialisation 1.0 to financialisation 2.0, i.e. the transition from pure speculation to long-term investment. We show that long-term investment strategies are used by REITs and listed funds in order to release housing into the privatised mainstream of capital accumulation. With the advent of the financialisation of rental housing 2.0, the long-term investment focus of these funds paradoxically enables a short-term investment focus by buying and selling shares in these funds on the stock exchange.In diesem Beitrag werden zwei im Ruhrgebiet tätige börsennotierte Wohnungsgesellschaften in den Blick genommen. Die erste Aktiengesellschaft ist Immeo Wohnen, eine Tochtergesellschaft des französischen Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) Foncière des Régions, die sich zuvor im Besitz eines US-amerikanischen Hedge Fonds befand. Das zweite Wohnungsunternehmen ist Vonovia, das gegenwärtig größte Wohnungsunternehmen in Deutschland. Ursprünglich war Vonovia ein Ableger einer Britischen Privat-Equity-Gesellschaft. Beide Beispiele stehen für das, was wir als eine Verschiebung von Finanzialisierung 1.0 zu Finanzialisierung 2.0 bezeichnen, d.h. der Übergang von reiner Spekulation zu langfristigem Investment. Wir argumentieren, dass langfristige Investmentstrategien von REITs und Aktiengesellschaften darauf zielen, Wohnen in den privatisierten Mainstream der Kapitalakkumulation zu überführen. Allerdings wird der langfristige Investmentfokus beider Aktiengesellschaften mit Beginn von Finanzialisierung 2.0 von einem kurzfristig orientierten Börsenhandel der Aktien dieser Gesellschaften begleitet.

  • The Value of Rents: Global Commodity Chains and Small Cocoa Producers
           in Ecuador
    • Authors: Thomas Purcell; Estefania Martinez, Nora Fernandez
      Abstract: Drawing on the Marxian theory of ground rent, this paper develops an analysis of “global commodity chains” (GCCs) with agrarian roots. There is an acknowledgement that the concentrated downstream governance of primary commodity-based GCCs has created a set of “asymmetrical” power relations which blocks the transmission of value upstream towards small producers. This paper argues that this research under-specifies what is meant by value and rent, and in doing so marginalises the analysis of value production before its journey through inter-firm relations. We demonstrate the importance of theorising the value constitution of commodities produced on the land and the forces that contest the payment of ground rent and thereby shape the geography of GCCs. Based on empirical research conducted around Ecuador's “post-neoliberal” cocoa re-activation plan, we identify the class politics and production mechanisms through which value and rent escapes the hands of a stratified network of small owner producers.Este artículo desarrolla un análisis sobre “cadenas globales de mercancías” (CGM) con raíces agrarias utilizando la teoría marxista de la renta de la tierra. Existe un reconocimiento de que la gobernanza de las CGM primarias concentrada en el procesamiento ha creado una serie de relaciones de poder “asimétricas” que bloquean la transmisión de valor hacia pequeños productores agrarios. El artículo plantea que esta aserción sub-especifica lo que se entiende por valor y renta y que, al hacerlo, marginaliza el análisis de la producción de valor antes de su recorrido a través de las relaciones inter-firmas. Demostramos la importancia de teorizar la constitución del valor de las mercancías producidas en la tierra y las fuerzas que impugnan el pago de la renta de la tierra y dan de este modo forma a la geografía de las CGM. Sobre la base de investigación empírica realizada alrededor del plan ‘post-neoliberal’ de Ecuador para la reactivación del cacao, identificamos las políticas de clase y los mecanismos de producción a través de los cuales el valor y la renta se escapan de las manos de una red estratificada de pequeños productores propietarios agrarios.

  • “From One Shore to the Other”: Other Revolutions in the
           Interstices of the Revolution
    • Authors: Martina Tazzioli
      Abstract: This interview with Imed Soltani and Federica Sossi focuses on the campaign of the families of the missing Tunisian migrants, “From One Shore to the Other: Lives that Matter”. The campaign started in 2011 to demand that Italian and Tunisian institutions be held accountable for the disappearance of young Tunisian migrants who crossed the Mediterranean to Italy. The campaign brought together the families of Tunisian migrants and the Italian feminist collective “Le Venticinqueundici” as part of a migration struggle that involves the entire region but is rarely taken up as a cross-shore militant campaign. The conversation between Soltani and Sossi illustrates the strengths of the campaign and the difficulties that arose in running it across shores, and offers a theoretical reflection on the notion of political recognition in an effort to decolonise the gaze on what counts as political subjectivity and political struggle.

  • Shifting Bordering and Rescue Practices in the Central Mediterranean Sea,
           October 2013–October 2015
    • Authors: Glenda Garelli; Charles Heller, Lorenzo Pezzani, Martina Tazzioli
      Abstract: This counter-mapping project illustrates the areas of intervention of different operations geared toward rescue and enforcement between 2013 and 2015, including the Italian Navy's “Mare Nostrum” search and rescue mission, the EU border agency Frontex's “Triton” enforcement operation, the humanitarian interventions of commercial vessels, and the action of civil-society rescue vessels such as those operated by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF—Doctors Without Borders). The project offers a spatial understanding of the Mediterranean border-scape, the practices of rescue and enforcement that occur within it, and the risk of sea-crossing at this particular moment. Through these maps, the Central Mediterranean Sea emerges as a striking laboratory from which novel legal arrangements, surveillance technologies, and institutional assemblages converge.

  • Populism, Hegemony, and the Politics of Natural Resource Extraction in Evo
           Morales's Bolivia
    • Authors: Diego Andreucci
      Abstract: Is populism necessary to the articulation of counter-hegemonic projects, as Laclau has long argued' Or is it, as Žižek maintains, a dangerous strategy, which inevitably degenerates into ideological mystification and reactionary postures' In this paper, I address this question by exploring the politics of discourse in Evo Morales's Bolivia. While, in the years leading to the election of Morales, a populist ideological strategy was key to challenging neoliberal forces, once the hegemony of the new power bloc was stabilised, indigenous demands for emancipatory socio-environmental change began to be perceived as a threat to resource-based accumulation. In this context, the populist signifiers that originated in indigenous-popular struggles were used by the Morales government to legitimise repression of the indigenous movement. I argue, therefore, that ideological degeneration signals a problem not with populism per se, but rather with the class projects and shifting correlations of forces that underpin it in changing conjunctures.¿Es el populismo necesario para la articulación de proyectos contrahegemónicos, como Laclau argumentó durante mucho tiempo' ¿O es, como sostiene Žižek, una estrategia peligrosa, que inevitablemente degenera en mistificación ideológica y en posturas reaccionarias' En el presente artículo abordo esta cuestión a través de un análisis del discurso del gobierno de Evo Morales. En Bolivia, en los años que llevaron a la elección de Morales, una estrategia ideológica populista fue clave para desafiar a las fuerzas neoliberales. Una vez estabilizada la hegemonía del nuevo bloque de poder, sin embargo, las demandas indígenas para un cambio socioambiental emancipatorio comenzaron a percibirse como una amenaza para la acumulación basada en la extracción de recursos naturales. En este contexto, los significantes populistas originados en las luchas anti-neoliberales fueron utilizados por el gobierno para legitimar la represión del movimiento indígena. Sostengo, por lo tanto, que la degeneración ideológica señala un problema no con el populismo de por sí, sino que con los proyectos políticos y de clase que se basan en ello en distintas coyunturas.

  • Autoconstruction 2.0: Social Media Contestations of Racialized Violence in
           Complexo do Alemão
    • Authors: Carolyn Prouse
      Abstract: Activists and journalists in Complexo do Alemão, Rio de Janeiro are using social media to intervene in the violence that shapes their communities. In this article I draw on critical urban and digital media theory to understand how militarized policing, the spatialization of race, and discourses of criminalization influence favela populations. I examine how these discursive and material violences are motivating residents to autoconstruct new digital communities. Through digital autoconstruction, journalists and activists are using social media technologies to safely direct mobility, to witness police violence, and to unsettle socio-spatial imaginaries of endemic crime. As such, they are deploying digital practices to disrupt material, epistemological, and discursive mechanisms of social control. These actions show that digital technologies are always-already embodied and take shape through material histories, such as those of racialized state violence. Journalists and activists in Complexo do Alemão ultimately demonstrate that targets of violence are not simply victims of digital and violent surveillance, but are active in creating new digital relationships of care across diverse scales, transforming these technologies in the process.

  • Generating Confusion, Concern, and Precarity through the Right to Rent
           Scheme in Scotland
    • Authors: Sharon Leahy; Kim McKee, Joe Crawford
      Abstract: The Immigration Act 2016 has heralded an era of amplified Government intervention into day-to-day life, placing increased responsibility for border protection on UK citizens. Using interviews with representatives from the field of housing in Scotland, this paper examines one specific aspect of the Immigration Act 2016, the Right to Rent scheme. We investigate how the Right to Rent creates a precarious environment for all those who may appear to be non-UK citizens. We argue that it may endorse senses of fantasy citizenship to inculcate people into acting on behalf of the state and is a driver for further division in society. Scotland provides a particularly interesting case study, as housing is a devolved power, but immigration is not. This creates an additional layer of tension in our interview data, as housing organisations are faced with a set of conditions imposed from Westminster, infringing on a field that Scotland has self-determined for some time. Our interviews illustrate the level of confusion around the scheme, the fact that it is increasing criminalisation in the housing sector, and stresses that the scheme is offloading state responsibility for border protection.

  • The $15 Wage Movement Moves South: Politics of Region in Labor Union
    • Authors: Megan Brown
      Abstract: The North American labor movement continues to wrestle with the challenges of organizing workers in the US South. This article explores the contradictory position of the South in the contemporary labor movement, using the circulation of the $15 minimum wage to ground the analysis. By problematizing the place of the South in US labor, this article contributes to efforts to complicate the geographic imaginaries of the South and to our understanding of the contemporary labor movement's expansionary projects. Drawing on qualitative interviews and participant observation in Greensboro and Durham, North Carolina, and Richmond, Virginia, I trace the abstract circulation of organizational resources, strategies, and tactics of the $15 wage movement into, throughout, and back out of the South.

  • Control and Abandonment: The Power of Surveillance on Refugees in Italy,
           During and After the Mare Nostrum Operation
    • Authors: Barbara Pinelli
      Abstract: Migrants' daily arrivals to Italy's southern coasts and continuous shipwrecks in the Mediterranean have captured international media attention, producing a fixation on the scene of landing and a deliberate marginalization of what happens to migrants and refugees after the moment of landing. This paper aims to refocus analytical attention on the lives of asylum seekers after landing in Europe, breaking through the institutional silence that is cast upon the infrastructure of the camp, the logic of assistance and the bureaucratic waiting zone asylum seekers are stuck in. By documenting political changes in European and national policies, the paper reflects on the forms of institutional control and abandonment refugees are subjected to once they land in Italy, and are housed in the governmental camps and extraordinary structures which arose at the time of the Mare Nostrum Operation where strict discipline, carelessness, uncertainty and confusion intertwine.

  • The Humanitarian War Against Migrant Smugglers at Sea
    • Authors: Glenda Garelli; Martina Tazzioli
      Abstract: This paper engages with the military-humanitarian technology of migration management from the vantage point of the European Union Naval Force Mediterranean (EUNAVFOR MED) “Operation Sophia”, the naval and air force intervention deployed by the EU in the Central Southern Mediterranean to disrupt “the business model of human smuggling and trafficking” while “protecting life at sea”. We look at the military-humanitarian mode of migration management that this operation performs from three vantage points: logistics, with a focus on the infrastructure of migrant travels; subjectivity, looking at the migrant profiles this operation works through; and epistemology, building on the mission's first stage of intelligence and data gathering. Through this multi-focal approach, we illuminate the productivity of this military-humanitarian approach to the migration crisis in the Mediterranean.

  • Space Invaders in Barcelona: Political Society and Institutional Invention
           Beyond Representation
    • Authors: Francesco Salvini
      Abstract: In the contemporary neoliberal urban dynamics, those agencies that are on the margin of society constantly disrupt the boundaries of civil representation and forge new institutional relations within the dynamics of urban governance. I explore how this process was enacted at the turn of the century in Barcelona, looking at two coeval social mobilisations: the lock-in of undocumented migrants in the Iglesia del Pi (2001), and the project of las agencias at the Museum of Contemporary Arts (1999–2003), both of which unfolded in the central neighbourhood of Raval. The invasion of the boundaries of civil society emerges here as a double phenomenon—one that develops both within society and in relation to institutions, instituting new modes of urban politics.

  • Zopilotes, Alacranes, y Hormigas (Vultures, Scorpions, and Ants): Animal
           Metaphors as Organizational Politics in a Nicaraguan Garbage Crisis
    • Authors: Alex M. Nading; Josh Fisher
      Abstract: While scholars frequently frame conflicts over urban waste in terms of a politics of infrastructure, this article frames such conflicts in terms of a politics of organization. In 2008, self-employed recyclers in and around Managua, Nicaragua blockaded local dumps in an effort to secure rights to scavenge for resellable material. Over the course of this “garbage crisis”, a material and semiotic entanglement of human labor organization with animal ecology became politically salient. At different points, recyclers were compared to ants (hormigas), vultures (zopilotes), and scorpions (alacranes). State officials, NGOs, and recyclers themselves used these animal metaphors to describe the organization of waste collection. Drawing on theories of value from political ecology and economic anthropology, as well as analysis of the deployment of these “organic” metaphors, we outline an “organizational politics” of urban waste.Los geógrafos y antropólogos frecuentemente describen conflictos sobre los residuos urbanos en términos de una política de infraestructura. Este artículo describe tales conflictos en términos de una política de organización. En 2008, los recicladores autónomos en Managua, Nicaragua y sus alrededores bloquearon vertederos locales en un esfuerzo por asegurar los derechos de recolectar materiales revendibles. A lo largo de esta “crisis de la basura”, un enredo material y semiótico entre la organización del trabajo humano y la ecología animal se hizo políticamente significativo. En diferentes puntos, los recicladores fueron comparados con hormigas, zopilotes, y alacranes. Los funcionarios del Estado, las ONG y los recicladores utilizaron estas metáforas animales para describir la organización de la recolección de residuos. Basándonos en las teorías del valor trazada desde la ecología política y la antropología económica, así como el análisis del despliegue de estas metáforas “orgánicas”, esbozamos una “política organizativa” de los residuos urbanos.

  • Navigating the Fault Lines: Race and Class in Philadelphia's Solidarity
    • Authors: Craig Borowiak; Maliha Safri, Stephen Healy, Marianna Pavlovskaya
      Abstract: In debates over post-capitalist politics, growing attention has been paid to the solidarity economy (SE), a framework that draws together diverse practices ranging from co-ops to community gardens. Despite proponents’ commitment to inclusion, racial and class divides suffuse the SE movement. Using qualitative fieldwork and an original SE dataset, this article examines the geospatial composition of the SE within the segregated geography of Philadelphia. We find that though the SE as a whole is widely distributed across the city, it is, with the exception of community gardens, largely absent from poor neighborhoods of color. We also identify SE clusters in racially and economically diverse border areas rather than in predominantly affluent White neighborhoods. Such findings complicate claims about the SE's emancipatory potential and underscore the need for its realignment towards people of color and the poor. We conclude with examples of how the SE might more fully address racial injustice.En los debates sobre la política post-capitalista se ha prestado cada vez mas atención a la economía solidaria (ES), marco teórico que reúne diversas prácticas que abarcan desde cooperativas hasta huertos comunitarios. A pesar del compromiso de los proponentes con la inclusión, las divisiones raciales y de clase permean el movimiento de la ES. Utilizando trabajo cualitativo de campo y un levantamiento de datos original, este artículo examina la composición geo-espacial de la ES en el contexto de la segregación espacial de Filadelfia. Observamos que aunque la ES como un todo está ampliamente distribuida por toda la ciudad, está ausente en los barrios pobres de color, con la excepción de los huertos comunitarios. También identificamos grupos de ES en zonas fronterizas, racial y económicamente diversas, más que en barrios predominantemente ricos y blancos. Estos hallazgos complican las afirmaciones acerca del potencial emancipatorio de la ES y subrayan la necesidad de su realineación hacia las personas de color y los pobres. Concluimos con ejemplos de cómo la SE podría abordar más plenamente la injusticia racial.

  • Environmental Justice Meets Risk-Class: The Relational Distribution of
           Environmental Bads
    • Authors: Dean Curran
      Abstract: Recent treatments of environmental justice have highlighted the need to move beyond focusing upon inequalities in the distribution of environmental risks to address other aspects of environmental injustice, including unequal participation and recognition. While acknowledging the importance of extending environmental justice to include these other dimensions of justice, this paper argues that more, not less, analytical attention needs to be devoted to the diverse logics of distribution of environmental risks. In light of continuing dilemmas associated with whether environmental inequalities can be just or, alternatively, that environmental inequality and injustice are co-extensive, this paper proposes to untangle some key connections between environmental inequalities and injustice through a critical confrontation of environmental justice with risk-class analysis. Focusing on the positional or relational distribution of environmental bads as analysed in risk-class analysis, this paper argues that bringing these two bodies of knowledge together can illuminate how relational inequalities have characteristics that make them particularly illegitimate from a justice perspective, thus making an advance in identifying key connections between environmental inequality and injustice.

  • Beyond the Right to the City: Territorial Autogestion and the Take over
           the City Movement in 1970s Italy
    • Authors: Neil Gray
      Abstract: The cry and demand for the Right to the City (RttC) risks becoming a cliché, merely signifying urban rebellion rather than proving its practical content on the ground. I explore the limits of the thesis via its fraught entanglement with private property rights and the state-form; and through Lefebvre's radical critique of the state, political economy and rights elsewhere. Rights claims, I contend, unintentionally reify the uneven power relations they aim to overcome, while routinely cauterising the hard-fought collective social force that forces social gains. As a counter to the RttC thesis, I explore the autonomous Take over the City (TotC) movements of 1970s Italy, arguing that these largely neglected eminently immanent forms of territorial community activism, brought here into dialogue with Lefebvre's conception of territorial autogestion, surpassed the RttC thesis in praxis. The experience of “Laboratory Italy” thus provides highly suggestive lessons for a contemporary politics of urban space.

  • Space, Social Relations, and Contestation: Transformative Peacebuilding
           and World Social Forum Climate Spaces
    • Authors: Karen Buckley
      Abstract: The 2013 and 2015 World Social Forums in Tunis, Tunisia hosted thematic “climate spaces” for the first time. This article examines the extent to which these spaces are constitutive of a form of “transformative peacebuilding” aiming to transform social relations and eliminate the structural violence of the world capitalist economy. Both the theoretical and practical activities of civil society at the climate spaces are shown to be transformative but only to the extent that they contest broad processes of trasformismo which transcend differences and obscure the lived realities of governance and resistance. In this sense, civil society groups and movements at the climate spaces are shown to engage with global capitalism to potentially produce new global understanding and action. This generates new understandings of civil society as constitutive of directly resistant modes of social relation that push for radically different visions of climate justice and governance.

  • Environmentality on the Canadian Prairies: Settler-Farmer Subjectivities
           and Agri-Environmental Objects
    • Authors: Julia M.L. Laforge; Stéphane M. McLachlan
      Abstract: State and institutional actors have been shaping settler-farmer subjectivities in order to transform the landscape and thus the history and geography of the Canadian Prairies. This paper expands the application of environmentality from its origins in colonial forestry to interrogate agriculture on prairie landscapes. The Canadian state used the technologies of environmentality to influence “common sense” attitudes and behaviours, which acted to deterritorialize Indigenous communities and then manipulated their subjectivities to guarantee settler-farmer access to land. Later, institutions and states moulded settler-farmer subjectivities of correct farming behaviour in an effort to convert soil, water, and seeds into economic resources. These environmental objects, in turn, acted upon settler-farmer subjects by setting biophysical and genetic limits such as soil fertility, water quality and quantity, and plant hardiness and disease resistance. Resisting environmentality requires understanding processes of subjugation while also creating counter-narratives of “good” farming behaviour and Indigenous-settler relations.

           Access, and Geographies of Self-Reliance
    • Authors: Ashanté M. Reese
      Abstract: Drawing from 18 months of ethnographic fieldwork in Washington, DC, this article outlines geographies of self-reliance; a theoretical framework for understanding black food geographies that are embedded in histories of self-reliance as a response to structural inequalities. Using a community garden as a case study, I argue that the garden functions as a site for addressing several manifestations of structural violence: racist and classist depictions of low-income and working class people, joblessness, gentrification, and youth underdevelopment. Drawing on self-reliance ideologies as well as collective and personal histories, the residents exhibit a form of agency that demonstrates unwavering hope in the sustainability of their shared community. Through this analysis, I show that self-reliance functions as a mechanism through which residents navigate spatial inequalities.

Looking at the proliferation of wars around the Mediterranean region and reflecting on the legacy of the Arab Uprisings, Mezzadra and Negri revisit the concept of the “autonomy of migration” and critically interrogate its possible contribution to the field of migration and in terms of the current refugee crisis.

  • The Abstraction of Care: What Work Counts'
    • Authors: Caitlin Henry
      Abstract: Nurses provide essential health care labor, but their work, a mix of caregiving and clinical expertise, is often undervalued and unacknowledged by health care administrators and the policies and practices that govern health care more broadly. Based on interviews with nurses working in the New York metropolitan area and through pairing feminist political economy with literature on abstraction and politics of the possible, I show that the ways in which nurses’ work is measured creates a value hierarchy of tasks. Examining various tools of measurement, I argue that methods for measuring work are rooted in an historical and continuous hierarchy of what counts as work and what has value. For nurses, these processes obscure the essential care work they perform. I argue that bringing an explicit politics of social reproduction to the politics of measuring and accounting for work makes visible necessary and often-obscured tasks, spaces, and social relations.

      Abstract: The conversation between Étienne Balibar and Nicholas De Genova engages with the Mediterranean of migration as a multifaceted, productive, and contested space, which can represent a counterpoint to a deep-rooted Eurocentric imaginary. Looking at the Mediterranean as a space produced by the mobility of the bodies crossing it and by the combination of different struggles, Balibar and De Genova comment on some of the political movements that have taken center stage in the Mediterranean region in the past few years and suggest that the most important challenge today is to mobilize a “Mediterranean point of view” whereby the political borders of Europe and its self-centered referentiality can be challenged.

  • Militarized Capitalism' The Apparel Industry's Role in Scripting a
           Post-War National Identity in Sri Lanka
    • Authors: Kanchana N. Ruwanpura
      Abstract: This paper examines new garment factories in the former war zone of North and East Sri Lanka. This paper elucidates the role of the state–military–capital nexus in the Sri Lankan government's efforts to rebuild the nation following a longstanding ethnic war, a post-war development strategy that has emphasized investment and job creation. Drawing on fieldwork with numerous managers and more in-depth exploration in one such garment factory, the paper shows how garment industry managers deployed a Sinhala-Buddhist management ethos to produce an unmarked class of modern workers and, in doing so, played an active role in re-scripting narratives of the nation. Therefore, we argue that capital is imbricated in the government's militarized nation-building efforts, and we call for more attention to how the industrial capital–military–state nexus may be shaping and re-producing power relations in the North and East of Sri Lanka.

           Radical Struggles in Italy
    • Authors: Pierpaolo Mudu
      Abstract: Italy could be considered a social laboratory in relation to radical theories, practices, struggles and radical political conditions. It is worth exploring what kind of laboratory Italy is and investigating some of the features of current struggles that challenge neoliberalism and the revival of fascism. One way to grasp the specificity of the Italian context is by considering an inherent set of social conflicts that take the form of multidimensional challenges, embracing social, cultural, economic and decision-making dimensions. Put succinctly, a prefigurative politics is the lens suggested to interpret the experience of squatting and commoning, which are the fundamental attributes of many related struggles over housing and Social Centers and environmental protection.

  • Human Rights Beyond Humanitarianism: The Radical Challenge to the Right to
           Asylum in the Mediterranean Zone
    • Authors: Alessandra Sciurba; Filippo Furri
      Abstract: This article argues for a new centrality of the right to asylum within the Mediterranean zone and the necessity to defend and implement this right beyond the “humanitarian regime”. The first section describes the ways in which humanitarianism's logic has weakened the right to asylum through the implementation of specific EU migration policies since 2013. The second section focuses on the distinction between such a humanitarian regime and the human rights system, assessing the possibility of and necessity for a renewed defense of human rights, starting with the right to asylum. The third section focuses on the Charter of Lampedusa, a radical, alternative normative instrument developed through a grassroots process which involved activists and migrant rights groups and which represents a concrete illustration of how the horizon of human rights might be redefined.

  • Hijacking the Narrative: The First World Forum on Natural Capital,
           #natcap13, and Radical Dissent
    • Authors: Brett S. Matulis; Jessica R. Moyer
      Abstract: The first World Forum on Natural Capital (WFNC) was an important moment in the production of “valued” nature. It brought together bankers, CEOs, and business elites to promote financialized environmental accounting as a solution to ecosystem degradation. Anti-capitalist activists, however, opposed the further intrusion of economic logic to environmental decision-making and resisted its progression. While WFNC organizers were able to advance the concept of “natural capital” through traditional (print and web 1.0) media, they struggled to control the social media narrative. Digital activists were able to challenge the official narrative on Twitter and compel organizers to address the associated social and environmental justice concerns. As such, social media produced the conditions for both abstracting nature into value-bearing commodities and, simultaneously, resisting such abstraction. Drawing on theories of counterpublic organization, public spheres of deliberation, and agonistic confrontation, this paper explores the discursive co-production of nature in a new digitally mediated world.

  • Delocalization, Humanitarianism, and Human Rights: The Mediterranean
           Border Between Exclusion and Inclusion
    • Authors: Paolo Cuttitta
      Abstract: By reflecting on both the exclusionary and the inclusionary role of humanitarian migration and border management in the Central Mediterranean, this paper explores the relationship of humanitarianism with the delocalization of the EU border and with human rights. First, the paper analyses the role of human rights in the institutional humanitarian discourse about migration and border management at the Mediterranean EU border. The paper then analyses the Italian operation Mare Nostrum and, more generally, Italian humanitarianized border management in the Central Mediterranean. In doing this, it shows that humanitarianism contributes to the discursive legitimation and spatial delocalization of exclusionary policies and practices. Moreover, humanitarianism contributes to a symbolically and legally subordinate inclusion of migrants in the European space. While such humanitarian inclusion can be more inclusive than what human rights would require, it is posited as an act of grace rather than an enhancement of human rights. In both its exclusionary and inclusionary dimension, humanitarianism transcends and expands territorial boundaries by outsourcing responsibilities and enhancing delocalized border management.

  • A Fleet of Mediterranean Border Humanitarians
    • Authors: Maurice Stierl
      Abstract: EUrope has created a space of human suffering within which military-humanitarian measures seem urgently required if the mass drowning is to be halted. The framing of migration governance as humanitarian has become commonplace in spectacular border practices in the Mediterranean Sea. Nonetheless, maritime disasters continue to unfold. This article discusses three non-governmental actors, part of an emerging “humanitarian fleet” that seeks to turn the sea into a less deadly space: the Migrant Offshore Aid Station, Médecins Sans Frontières, and Sea-Watch. While the rescue of precarious lives and the alleviation of suffering are central concerns, they imagine their humanitarian practices, the subjects of their compassion, and EUrope's role in shaping borderzones in different ways, pointing to a wide humanitarian spectrum. Engaging with the different discursive frames created by the three “border humanitarians”, the article explores what possibilities exist for political dissent to emanate from within humanitarian reason.
