The Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP) is organizing this year's free virtual Outreach Conference “Reimagining Our Worlds from Below” (#Reimagining2022) with an innovative format: first, the speakers of the total of 10 panels upload their video formats, which can be viewed and commented on throughout May. Then, from May 18–21, virtual panels will be held to discuss.
Hendrik Simon, Researcher at PRIF, will participate in the panel “From Everyday Struggles to Global Change: Possibilities and Hurdles for Transnational Social Movement Unionism”. He will speak on “Networks of Solidarity and Trust” in global automotive value chains using the example of the “IG Metall Netzwerkinitiative” (network initiative).
