Halting Global Degradation?: Forces which might Reverse the Spread of Toxic Work

Abstract [en]

In the suggested paper I want to contribute to making it possible to imagine the reversal of two global trends. In wide circles it is un-controversial to claim that those trends are threatening the very fabric of life. The trends which I have in mind are the degradation of work and the toxification of the biosphere.

The paper builds on my contribution to a three year research project called INFLOW.

My main contribution was a research report titled The doll, the globe and the boomerang - chemical hazards futures introduced by a doll travelling from China to Sweden. In the report I inter alia discuss a number of forces which – in the long run – might reverse the trends.

A product chain that I use as illustration starts in the heart of the new workshop of the world – the Pearl River Delta in the South Chinese province Guandong. Research initiated by a group of ethnic Chinese scholars is a good starting point when discussing internal "Southern" forces for reversal. One important conclusion of their work is that "despite formidable institutional odds, Chinese workers do resist ... the commodification of labor power".

Important "Northern" support for "internal Southern forces", such as the Chinese forces hinted to above, will be needed. I call some of the non-governmental forces "Castellian" with reference to Manuel Castells' discussion of the multi-pronged movement that has started to act on global warming. INGOs, Unions and progressive academics are among those forces.

"Gramscian forces" will also be essential in spite of the weakening of state regulatory power which are crucial when interpreting our times.

Technological and entrepreneurial forces as well as such forces as demand shapers in the North will of course also be important for a possible reversal.
