As part of a series of events in collaboration with MEP for the FireWorks Series
Author Ursula Huws (Professor of Labour and Globalisation at University of Hertfordshire, UK) with Todd Wolfson (Department of Journalism and Media Studies Rutgers University, US). Moderated by FireWorks Series editor, and Editorial Director at Pluto Press, David Castle.
Huws proposes a welfare state infused with social justice and equality, including a redistributive UBI (universal basic income), decommodification of platforms and universal workers’ rights.
The welfare state is unfit for purpose – how can we transform it into a force for equality and social justice?
