Seminar #4 | Self-Management in debate(s)

Does self-management exist today in Portugal?

June 7, 2021, 14h00 (GMT +01:00)

Online event


During the turbulent years following the April 1974 Revolution in Portugal, different left-wing forces promoted self-management as an economic and political project for the country. However, the successive political transition to a liberal democracy based on a capitalist market economy ended up undermining the legitimacy and economic vigour of many of the self-management experiments that were underway. Despite the fact that the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic recognises self-management as a right to economic initiative, it is clearly absent from the main contemporary economic and political debates. In this seminar, we put self-management back at the centre stage, discussing the challenges and opportunities of some of the experiences currently being developed on the ground.

Speakers: (TBC)
