“A spectre haunts the world and it is the spectre of migration.”
These words of A.Negri ring truer than ever in post-Brexit Britain.
Immigrants are either brandished criminals, victims, or treated as bargaining chips in negotiations.  To understand contemporary capitalism, one needs to understand “the spectre of migration”. Mark Bergfeld will present his on-going research on “the spectre of migration”: What does British capital want and need? How can we understand the Labour Party and trade unions’ position toward migrant workers?  How do migrant workers build power?
