Challenging the main ways we debate globalization, Global Displacements reveals how uneven geographies of capitalist development shape—and are shaped by—the aspirations and everyday struggles of people in the global South.

  • Makes an original contribution to the study of globalization by bringing together critical development and feminist theoretical approaches
  • Opens up new avenues for the analysis of global production as a long-term development strategy
  • Contributes novel theoretical insights drawn from the everyday experiences of disinvestment and precarious work on people’s lives and their communities
  • Represents the first analysis of increasing uneven development among countries in the Caribbean
  • Calls for more rigorous studies of long accepted notions of the geographies of inequality and poverty in the global South
