Abstract

The themes of Part III involve the social consequences of financial crises, new forms of flexible accumulation, the constitution of global labor regimes, deepening processes of commodification associated with sex trafficking and the informal arrangements and legal orders that sanction their existence. A common thread is that a more disciplinary neo-liberal world order corresponds with more precarious forms of social reproduction, intensified exploitation and human insecurity. This is a world where, for example, Gandhi’s ethical imperative to provide security to the most vulnerable is far too frequently, perhaps increasingly, ignored.
