Date: 25 November 2014
Main speaker: Saskia Sassen
Today’s socioeconomic and environmental dislocations cannot be fully understood in the usual terms of poverty and injustice, but more accurately in terms of expulsion—from professional livelihood, from living space, even from the very biosphere that makes life possible.
Comments by Roger Andersson and Lisa Pelling.
Moderator: Göran Rosenberg
Saskia Sassen, professor of sociologi at Columbia University in New York, has written several books on her research concerning globalization, information technology and global cities.
