The seminar is a joint Grand Challenge of Global Health and Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities event and is open to all.
In the last two decades there has been a sharp growth in the numbers of people “expelled” from their homes, villages, life projects, and support systems; they include the displaced, the abjectly poor, workers destroyed by their jobs, as well as surplus populations housed in ghettos and slums. Their numbers are far larger than the new middle classes of India and China. Dr Sassen argues that this may be symptomatic of a systemic transformation taking us into a new phase of global capitalism.
