The Precariat and Future Cities

Guy Standing
Thu 19 November 2015,

Guy Standing’s pioneering work on The Precariat identifies an emerging class of people, facing lives of insecurity, moving in and out of jobs that give little meaning to their lives. Standing believes that this poses instabilities in society, leads to the villainisation of migrants and other vulnerable groups, and makes people susceptible to political extremism. He presents his latest findings on this and debates the impact especially on urban areas. He is joined by author and commentator Danny Dorling.
